Acts 10:34-43

NEW TESTAMENT (Second Reading)

A Reading from the Acts of the Apostles


Then Peter proceeded to speak and said, 

“In truth, I see that God shows no partiality. 

Rather, in every nation whoever fears him 

     and acts uprightly is acceptable to him. 

You know the word [that] he sent to the Israelites 

     as he proclaimed peace through Jesus Christ, 

     who is Lord of all, what has happened all over Judea, 

     beginning in Galilee after the baptism 

     that John preached, 

     how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth

     with the holy Spirit and power. 

He went about doing good and healing all those      

     oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.

We are witnesses of all that he did 

     both in the country of the Jews and (in) Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree. 

This man God raised (on) the third day 

     and granted that he be visible, 

     not to all the people, but to us,     

     the witnesses chosen by God in advance, 

     who ate and drank with him 

     

after he rose from the dead. 

He commissioned us to preach to the people and testify 

     that he is the one appointed by God 

     as judge of the living and the dead.

To him all the prophets bear witness, 

     that everyone who believes in him will receive 

     forgiveness of sins through his name.”
