  the slaughter; And as a lamb before its
  shearer is silent, So He opened not His
  mouth. 33 In His humiliation His justice
  was taken away, And who will declare His
  generation? For His life is taken from the
  earth." 34 So the eunuch answered Philip
  and said, "I ask you, of whom does the
  prophet say this, of himself or of some
  other man?" 35 Then Philip opened his
  mouth, and beginning at this Scripture,
  preached Jesus to him.

  your heart, you may." And he answered
  and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is
  the Son of God." 38 So he commanded

  and the eunuch went down into the
  water, and he baptized him.

  healing all who were oppressed by the
  devil, for God was with Him. 39 "And we

  He commanded us to preach to the people,
  and to testify that it is He who was ordained
  by God to be Judge of the living and the
  dead. 43 "To Him all the prophets witness
  that, through His name, whoever believes in
  Him will receive remission of sins."

  midst of the Areopagus and said,
  "Men of Athens, I perceive that in all
  things you are very religious; 23 "for
  as I was passing through and
  considering the objects of your
  worship, I even found an altar with
  this inscription: TO THE UNKNOWN
  GOD. Therefore, the One whom you
  worship without knowing, Him I
  proclaim to you:
Paul’s Sermon
 Ac 17:24 "God, who made the world
  and everything in it, since He is Lord
  of heaven and earth, does not dwell
  in temples made with hands. 25 "Nor

  gives to all life, breath, and all things.

Paul’s Sermon
 Ac 17:26 "And He has made from one blood
  every nation of men to dwell on all the face
  of the earth, and has determined their
  preappointed times and the boundaries of
  their dwellings, 27 "so that they should
  seek the Lord, in the hope that they might
  grope for Him and find Him, though He is
  not far from each one of us; 28 "for in Him
  we live and move and have our being, as
  also some of your own poets have said, 'For
  we are also His offspring.'
Paul’s Sermon
 Ac 17:29 "Therefore, since we are the
  offspring of God, we ought not to think that
  the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or
  stone, something shaped by art and man's
  devising. 30 "Truly, these times of
  ignorance God overlooked, but now
  commands all men everywhere to repent,
  31 "because He has appointed a day on
  which He will judge the world in
  righteousness by the Man whom He has
  ordained. He has given assurance of this to
  all by raising Him from the dead."
