  • Graham on Acts 10
    In the last part of verse 43 Peter preaches "That through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive REMISSION OF SINS. " Similar words are also found in Acts 2 38, where Peter preaches to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the REMISSION OF SINS. Could Peter be preaching two different ways of receiving remission of sins? Please notice that in Acts 10 43 it says through his name whosoever believes receives remission of sins. I believe that through his name in verse 43 is referring to baptism in the name of Jesus. Please also notice that the gentiles received the Holy Spirit and was baptized in the name of the Lord which of course is the name of Jesus. In Acts 2 38 Peter preached repent be baptized in the name of Jesus for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the Holy Spirit. Acts 2 38 and the gentile conversion in Acts 10 are in perfect agreement.
