"Brothers and fathers, listen to my defense that I now make to you."
Paul looked directly at the council and said, "Brothers, I have lived my life with a clear conscience before God to this day."

this man, who was handed over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you executed by nailing him to a cross at the hands of Gentiles.
