“My fellow Israelites, listen to these words: Jesus from Nazareth was a very special man.
God clearly showed this to you. He proved it by the miracles, wonders, and miraculous signs he did through Jesus. You all saw these things, so you know this is true. Jesus was handed over to you, and you killed him. With the help of evil men, you nailed him to a cross. But God knew all this would happen. It was his plan—a plan he made long ago. Jesus suffered the pain of death, but God made him free. He raised him from death. There was no way for death to hold him.
God’s plan in a sinful world will cause you to suffer.
Do you still obey?
