Baptisim: Apostle's Creed -
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth;
I believe in Jesus Christ, His one and only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hades, and on the third day He rose again.
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen. ____________________________________________________________
Acts 13:13-16 ~ Now Paul and his companions put out to sea from Paphos and came to Perga in Pamphylia; but John left them and returned to Jerusalem. But going on from Perga, they arrived at Pisidian Antioch, and on the Sabbath day they went into the synagogue and sat down. After the reading of the Law and the Prophets the synagogue officials sent to them, saying, “Brethren, if you have any word of exhortation for the people, say it.” Paul stood up, and motioning with his hand said, “Men of Israel, and you who fear God, listen:

Acts 13:17-20 ~ “The God of this people Israel chose our fathers and made the people great during their stay in the land of Egypt, and with an uplifted arm He led them out from it. “For a period of about forty years He put up with them in the wilderness. “When He had destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan, He distributed their land as an inheritance—all of which took about four hundred and fifty years. (KJV: And after that he gave unto them judges about the space of four hundred and fifty years, until Samuel the prophet. Do the math.)
Acts 13:21-25 ~ “After these things He gave them judges until Samuel the prophet. “Then they asked for a king, and God gave them Saul the son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years. “After He had removed him, He raised up David to be their king, concerning whom He also testified and said, ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My heart, who will do all My will.’ “From the descendants of this man, according to promise, God has brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus, after John had proclaimed before His coming a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel. “And while John was completing his course, he kept saying, ‘What (KJV: Whom) do you suppose that I am? I am not He. But behold, one is coming after me the sandals of whose feet I am not worthy to untie.’
Acts 13:26-32 ~ “Brethren, sons of Abraham’s family, and those among you who fear God, to us (KJV: you) the message of this salvation has been sent. “For those who live in Jerusalem, and their rulers, recognizing neither Him nor the utterances of the prophets which are read every Sabbath, fulfilled these by condemning Him. “And though they found no ground for putting Him to death, they asked Pilate that He be executed. “When they had carried out all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the cross and laid Him in a tomb. “But God raised Him from the dead; and for many days He appeared to those who came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, the very ones who are now His witnesses to the people. “And we preach to you the good news of the promise made to the fathers,
Acts 13:33-39 ~ that God has fulfilled this promise to our (KJV: their) children in that He raised up Jesus, as it is also written in the second Psalm, ‘You are My Son; today I have begotten You.’ “As for the fact that He raised Him up from the dead, no longer to return to decay, He has spoken in this way: ‘I will give you the holy and sure blessings of David.’ “Therefore He also says in another Psalm, ‘You will not allow Your Holy One to undergo decay.’ “For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep, and was laid among his fathers and underwent decay; but He whom God raised did not undergo decay. “Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and through Him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses.
You are My Son; today I have begotten You
" Psalm 2:1-12 ~ Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One. “Let us break their chains,” they say, “and throw off their fetters.” The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them… “I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill.” … “You are My Son; today I have begotten You.” … Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son… lest you be destroyed in your way… Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
I will give you the holy and sure blessings of David ~ Eternal Kingdom with an eternal king - a king no longer subject to death - how? Resurrected.
You will not allow Your Holy One to undergo decay
Psalm 16:10 ~ because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
" Daniel 12 ~ “At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt... “As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise to receive your allotted inheritance.”
Acts 13:40-45 ~ “Therefore take heed, so that the thing spoken of in the Prophets may not come upon you: ‘Behold, you scoffers, and marvel, and perish; For I am accomplishing a work in your days, A work which you will never believe, though someone should describe it to you.’” As Paul and Barnabas were going out, the people kept begging that these things might be spoken to them the next Sabbath. Now when the meeting of the synagogue had broken up, many of the Jews and of the God-fearing proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, were urging them to continue in the grace of God.

Verse 43 - Now when the meeting of the synagogue had broken up, many of the Jews and of the God-fearing proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, were urging them to continue in the grace of God.
(A) Earliest mss of this verse in Majority; 9th century then 12th century. Wrong for probably wrong reasons and yet with God's Spirit and Biblical consistency even in the very next verse we can take a verse in gross error and see God's Truth that the, "Jews," would have been both Jews and converts who were not interested in the message and left as Jews and the other people were Jews and Converts who followed.
urging them Context tells us the people were telling Paul & Barnabas to continue in this teaching
Acts 13:44-49 ~ The next Sabbath nearly the whole city assembled to hear the word of the Lord (KJV: God). But when the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy and began contradicting the things spoken by Paul, and were blaspheming. Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and said, “It was necessary that the word of God be spoken to you first; since you repudiate it and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we are turning to the Gentiles. “For so the Lord has commanded us, ‘I have placed You as a light for the Gentiles, That You may bring salvation to the end of the earth.’” When the Gentiles heard this, they began rejoicing and glorifying the word of the Lord (KJV: God); and as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed. And the word of the Lord was being spread through the whole region.
I have placed You as a light for the Gentiles, That You may bring salvation to the end of the earth
as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed
Acts 13:50-52 ~ But the Jews incited the devout women of prominence and the leading men of the city, and instigated a persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and drove them out of their district. But they shook off the dust of their feet in protest against them and went to Iconium. And the disciples were continually filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.
