35 And they explained the things that were done on the way, and how they had recognized him at the breaking of the bread.
36 Then, while they were talking about these things, Jesus stood in their midst, And he said to them: "Peace be with you. It is I. Do not be afraid."
37 Yet truly, they were very disturbed and terrified, supposing that they saw a spirit.
38 And he said to them: "Why are you disturbed, and why do these thoughts rise up in your hearts?
39 See my hands and feet, that it is I myself. Look and touch. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as you see that I have."
40 And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet.
41 Then, while they were still in disbelief and in wonder out of joy, he said, "Do you have anything here to eat?"
42 And they offered him a piece of roasted fish and a honeycomb.
43 And when he had eaten these in their sight, taking up what was left, he gave it to them.
44 And he said to them: "These are the words that I spoke to you when I was still with you, because all things must be fulfilled which are written in the law of Moses, and in the Prophets, and in the Psalms about me."
45 Then he opened their mind, so that they might understand the Scriptures.
46 And he said to them: "For so it is written, and so it was necessary, for the Christ to suffer and to rise up from the dead on the third day,
47 and, in his name, for repentance and the remission of sins to be preached, among all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48 And you are witnesses of these things.
11 Then, as he held on to Peter and John, all the people ran to them at the portico, which is called Solomon's, in astonishment.
12 But Peter, seeing this, responded to the people: "Men of Israel, why do you wonder at this? Or why do you stare at us, as if it were by our own strength or power that we caused this man to walk?
13 The God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his Son Jesus, whom you, indeed, handed over and denied before the face of Pilate, when he was giving judgment to release him.
14 Then you denied the Holy and Just One, and petitioned for a murderous man to be given to you.
15 Truly, it was the Author of Life whom you put to death, whom God raised from the dead, to whom we are witnesses.
16 And by faith in his name, this man, whom you have seen and known, has confirmed his name. And faith through him has given this man complete health in the sight of you all.
17 And now, brothers, I know that you did this through ignorance, just as your leaders also did.
18 But in this way God has fulfilled the things that he announced beforehand through the mouth of all the Prophets: that his Christ would suffer.
19 Therefore, repent and be converted, so that your sins may be wiped away.
20 And then, when the time of consolation will have arrived from the presence of the Lord, he will send the One who was foretold to you, Jesus Christ,
21 whom heaven certainly must take up, until the time of the restoration of all things, which God has spoken of by the mouth of his holy prophets, from ages past.
22 Indeed, Moses said: 'For the Lord your God shall raise up a Prophet for you from your brothers, one like me; the same shall you listen to according to everything whatsoever that he shall speak to you.
23 And this shall be: every soul who will not listen to that Prophet shall be exterminated from the people.'
24 And all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and thereafter, have announced these days.
25 You are sons of the prophets and of the testament which God has appointed for our fathers, saying to Abraham: 'And by your offspring all the families of the earth shall be blessed.'
26 God raised up his Son and sent him first to you, to bless you, so that each one may turn himself away from his wickedness."
