“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.” (John 15:9)
“And we are witnesses of all that he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree, but God raised him on the third day and made him to appear, not to all the people but to us who had been chosen by God as witnesses, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. And he commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one appointed by God to be judge of the living and the dead. To him all the prophets bear witness that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”” (Acts 10:39–43)
Peter speaks as an eye-witness—as one who saw Jesus with his own eyes. Peter speaks words of truth, commanded by Christ. He has been sent out to preach and testify to the One who brings forgiveness and life.
