Context Readings

Preaching In The Synagogue At Pisidian Antioch

23 [Now] it was this David's descendant Jesus who was sent to Israel as their Savior, just as God had promised. 24 His coming occurred after John [the Immerser] had preached to Israel that those who repented should be immersed [as evidence that they had done so]. 25 As John was completing his ministry he said [to the great crowds], 'Who do you people think I am? [No], I am not the Messiah. But look, Someone is coming [to Israel] after [I complete] my mission whose sandal straps I am not even worthy to unfasten.'
