Acts 3:25-26 The Passion Translation (TPT)

25 And you are heirs of their prophecies[a] and of the covenants God made with your fathers when he promised Abraham,[b] ‘Your descendant[c] will bring blessing to all the people on the earth.’

26 “Now that God raised up his Son,[d] he has chosen to send him first to you that he might bless you by turning each one of you[e] from your wickedness.”[f]

Footnotes:

  1. Acts 3:25 Or “sons of the prophets.”
  2. Acts 3:25 See Gen. 22:18; 26:4.
  3. Acts 3:25 Or “seed” (descendants).
  4. Acts 3:26 The Greek word pais can mean either “servant” or “son.” (See Strong’s Concordance, Gr. 3816.) The Aramaic is clearly “son.” Notice how many times in the book of Acts that the followers of Christ preached the resurrection. The power and virtue of the cross can never be diminished; however, it is the resurrection of Christ that became the apostolic center of their preaching in the book of Acts.
  5. Acts 3:26 The Aramaic uses the conditional clause “if you turn and repent from your evils.”
  6. Acts 3:26 The Greek is plural, “wickednesses” or “evil ways.”
