Peter has finished his first sermon on the day of Pentecost. To the Jews gathered in Jerusalem, he laid out before them the truth regarding Jesus Christ. First, that in Jesus Christ they were witnesses to fulfilled prophecy. Second, even though He was the fulfillment of the Messianic prophecies, they killed Him. Finally, all this was according to the predetermined will of God, but they bore the guilt of handing Him over to sinful men to be executed; but vindicated by the Father through the resurrection.
Now faced with this reality, the Jews are cut to the core. Realizing their sin, they asked the key question, "What must we do?" This is the question posed to all humanity. In the face of our sin, and in the presence of a Holy God, what must we do?
As you listen to today's lesson, may you be blessed through the teaching of God's Holy Word. May you know and experience the grace of God that comes through faith in Jesus Christ.
Thank you for listening.
