“Know for certain . . . .”

What they heard

It was a day they would never forget.

Peter offered his audience four evidences that Jesus is the Christ.

First, His miracles (v. 22).

Second, fulfilled prophecy (vv. 16-21, 25-31, 34-35).

Third, the apostles’ eyewitness testimony to His resurrection (v. 32).

Fourth, the miracles on the day Peter spoke, including the apostles’ miraculously speaking languages that those in attendance understood (vv. 4-11, 33).

How they responded

These four evidences dovetail into one conclusion: “Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified” (v. 36).

Would that be enough to convince you?

It was enough for about 3,000 that day to be baptized for the forgiveness of their sins (vv. 37-41).

And the church was born.
