LESSON. Acts x. 37. 43.
the people, said: you know, brethren, the word which came through all Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism which John preached : I mean Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed him with the Holy Ghost and with power, who went about doing good, and healing all, who were oppressed by the Devil, for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all the things he did in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they put to death, hanging him on a tree. But God raised him on the third day, and made him appear openly, not indeed to all the people, but to the witnesses pre-ordained by God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he arose from the dead. And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify to them, that it is he, who is appointed by God judge of the living and the dead. All the Prophets bear him this testimony; that all those, who believe in him, shall, thro' his name, receive the forgiveness of sins.
