But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
Reflection: After Peter’s restoration, he was soon preaching before the “men of Israel.” In this address, he is here bringing to light the truth of the Scriptures and the fulfillment by Jesus Christ. Spurgeon made the following note, “See how he woos them, as a mother does her child, and interprets their wicked conduct as kindly as he can.”
Application: Lord help us to bear with those who have never heard the Gospel as we attempt to share with them the light of God’s truth. Help us to endure and bear with them because God's Word will do exactly what He has promised it will do.
