Jesus as Preached by the Apostles

By Carey Clark

Matthew 16:16 Peter replied, “You are the Christ[1] , the Son of the living God.” John 17:3 This is eternal life, that they may know You (Father), the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

Acts 2:22  “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know—

Acts 2:36  Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.”

Acts 3:13-14  The God of Abraham and of Isaac  and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus, whom you handed over and denied in the presence of Pilate, after  he had decided to release him. But you denied the Holy and Righteous One and demanded that a man—a murderer—be granted to you.  And you killed the author of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses!

Acts 3:18-26 But the things which God foretold through the mouth of all the prophets, that his Anointed would suffer, he has fulfilled in this way.  Therefore repent and turn back, so that your sins may be blotted out,  so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and he may send the Anointed One appointed for you—Jesus,  whom heaven must receive until the times of the restoration of all things, about which God spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets from earliest times.  Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brothers. You will listen to him in everything that he says to you. And it will be that every soul who does not listen to that prophet will be destroyed utterly from the people.’  And indeed, all the prophets from Samuel and all those who followed him have spoken about and proclaimed these days.  You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant that God ordained with your fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your offspring all the nations of the earth will be blessed.’  God, after he had raised up his servant, sent him to you first, to bless you by turning each of you back from your wickedness!”

Acts 4:30  while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”

Acts 5:30-31  The God of our fathers raised Jesus, whom you killed by hanging him on a tree.  God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.

Acts 5:42  And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they did not cease teaching and preaching that the Christ (anointed one) is Jesus.

Acts 8:4-5  Now those who were scattered went about preaching the word.  Philip went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed to them the Christ.

Acts 8:12  But when they believed Philip as he preached good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.

Acts 8:31b-35 And he (Ethiopian eunuch) invited Philip to come up and sit with him.  Now the passage of the Scripture that he was reading was this: “Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter and like a lamb before its shearer is silent, so he opens not his mouth.  In his humiliation justice was denied him. Who can describe his generation? For his life is taken away from the earth.” And the eunuch said to Philip, “About whom, I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?”  Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this Scripture he told him the good news about Jesus.

Acts 9:19b, 20, 22  For some days he was with the disciples at Damascus.  And immediately he proclaimed Jesus in the synagogues, saying, “He is the Son of God.” …  But Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who lived in Damascus by proving that Jesus was the Christ (messiah or anointed one).

Acts 10:34-43  So Peter opened his mouth and said: “Truly I understand that God shows no partiality,  but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.  As for the word that he sent to Israel, preaching good news of peace through Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all),  you yourselves know what happened throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism that John proclaimed:  how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.[2]  And 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,  but God raised him on the third day and made him to appear,  not to all the people but to us who had been chosen by God as witnesses, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. And he commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one appointed by God to be judge of the living and the dead.  To him all the prophets bear witness that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”

Acts 17:30-31  The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent,  because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.”

Acts 18:5  When Silas and Timothy arrived from Macedonia, Paul was occupied with the word, testifying to the Jews that the Christ was Jesus.

Acts 18:28  for he (Apollos) powerfully refuted the Jews in public, showing by the Scriptures that the Christ was Jesus.

Acts 22:12-14  “And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, well-spoken of by all the Jews who lived there,  came to me, and standing by me said to me, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight.’ And at that very hour I received my sight and saw him.  And he said, ‘The God of our fathers appointed you to know his will, to see the Righteous One and to hear a voice from his mouth;

Acts 28:30-31  He lived there two whole years at his own expense,  and welcomed all who came to him,  proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance.

1 Corinthians 8:6  yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.[3]

[1] Christ means anointed. It is important to understand that Jesus is God’s anointed one. Notice Acts 10:38 and note.

[2] Not that Jesus was God, but that God was with him. All of Christendom needs to study and understand Acts 10:38 and then all these other verses in Acts to understand who the Jesus is that the apostles believed in and preached. It could bring a powerful revival and change the world.

[3] This statement by Paul is fully clear. The Father is God. Jesus is Lord, yet subject to the Father. See 1 Cor. 15:27-28.
