Tuesday Night Bible Study

December 3, 2013

Study of the Book of Acts

Tonight’s Text – Acts 3:17-26Brief review

The audience – vs 17

–          “Brethren”

–          Same plane as religious leaders

–          The sin of unbelief

Fulfillment of prophecy – vs 18

– God’s Foreknowledge

A wonderful opportunity with a glorious purpose – vs 19

Repent ye therefore, and be converted”

        Two commands

 

“[You] Change your mind and [you] convert…”

 

What must I do to be saved?

A “from something : to something” relationship

The “Times of Refreshing”

–          a tie between rest and refreshed

– The Promised Land vs. the Kingdom of God

Israel’s Relationship to Christ – vs 20-26

–          Main Thought – vs 20, 26

 

19Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; 20and he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you… 26Unto you first, God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.”

 

Salvation was to the Jews first

–          Parenthetical thought – vs 21-25

Jesus is the prophet of Deut 18:15-19

All the prophets spoke of Jesus

Israel, heirs to the promises and covenants

Gentiles benefit from the promises to Israel
