Wesley's Notes for Acts 3:21


3:21 Till the times of the restitution of all things - The apostle here comprises at once the whole course of the times of the New Testament, between our Lord's ascension and his coming in glory. The most eminent of these are the apostolic age, and that of the spotless Church, which will consist of all the Jews and Gentiles united, after all persecutions and apostacies are at an end.

    2 Pete 15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction

    Ray;"But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; and killed the Prince of life, WHOM GOD RAISED FROM THE DEAD; whereof we are witnesses." Why do you think you have to find fault with the Apostle Peter? Peter was greatly loved and appointed by Jesus!
  • Ray321
    Acts 3:14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you. What's interesting is how Peter told the Jews how badly they murder Jesus , but never said anything about the resurrection of the Body of Jesus in detail. Also never said anything about Jesus being the Body of the Church. We will find later who Jesus tells about the Body of the Church .
