Acts 3:20 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

20 and that the Lord may grant you times of refreshment and send you the Messiah already appointed for you, Jesus,[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 3:20 The Lord…and send you the Messiah already appointed for you, Jesus: an allusion to the parousia or second coming of Christ, judged to be imminent in the apostolic age. This reference to its nearness is the only explicit one in Acts. Some scholars believe that this verse preserves a very early christology, in which the title “Messiah” (Greek “Christ”) is applied to him as of his parousia, his second coming (contrast Acts 2:36). This view of a future messiahship of Jesus is not found elsewhere in the New Testament.
