Paul's Discourses In Acts And The Life Of Jesus

TWH: There are thirteen discourses in Acts. Five belong to Peter (2:14–39; 3:12–26; 4:8–12; 10:35–43; 11:5–18). One belongs to Stephen (7:1–53). And the remaining seven belong to Paul (13:17–41; 17:22–31; 20:18–35; 22:3–21; 24:10–21; 26:2–29; 28:23–28). What details do Paul's provide about the life of Jesus?
1. Jesus is the descendent of David (13:23).
2. Jesus was from Nazareth (26:9).
3. Jesus was a man (17:31).
4. Jesus is the Messiah (26:23).
5. Jesus is the Savior of Israel (13:23).
6. Jesus ministry began after John's (13:24–25).
7. Jesus taught, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (20:35).
8. The message of salvation is intended for both the Jews and the Gentiles (13:26; 20:21; 22:21; 26:17, 20, 23; 28:28).
9. Jesus was put to death via crucifixion by the Jews in Jerusalem and the Roman authorities (13:27–28).
10. He was raised from the dead (13:30; 17:31).
11. He appeared to people after his resurrection (13:31; 22:6–11, 14, 18–21; 26:12–18).
12. Believing in Jesus, which includes repentance, is the expected response upon hearing the gospel (13:38–41; 17:30; 20:21; 22:16; 26:20).
