    Verse 22, I believe the heart mentioned here is symbolically Jesus. Jesus said I am before David, Jesus existed before David yet David is listed as his father in linage as the Messiah. The man fulfilling God 's will is Jesus, the heart of God. David was after Gods heart, Jesus, not before Jesus. It is Jesus not David that fulfills all of Gods will.

    If i recall back in verse 32 paul said "and we declare unto you a glad tidings " the question here is that, have you heard the glad tidings or have you recieved the glag tidings?
  • Explain why some use Cross and some use tree? Did not God say my word change not? His name will always be God because He is God! He had to come in the form of a Man whom He called Jesus and we know that Jesus and God are the same. However, a cross is not the same as a tree, would you please explain why it has been changed by your interpretation?

    I believe it is good for people to read this for it shows them that no matter where they are in there life, it is never to late to turn around and God can do anything!

    Joseph Ryder 's Acts Chapter 13 comment on 10 20 2013, 10 47am... Paul is not wrong. God hand picked him to save the gentiles. when the Jews rejected Jesus the Christ. God turned to the gentiles.We had no place with God. The laws and the promise was for the Jew 's only. Thanks to the Jews we can be saved.
