Acts 3:1-11

A.(1) Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. (2) And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried,

B. whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

C1.(3) Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.

C2. (4) And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. (5) And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.

D.(6) Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

E.(7) And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

D’.(8) And he leaping up stood, and walked,

C1′. and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

C’.(9) And all the people saw him walking and praising God:

B’.(10) And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.

A.(11) And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering.

Acts 4:14-22

A. 14 And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it.

B.(17) But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name.

C.(18) And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.

D.(19) But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.

C’.(20) For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.

B.(21) So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done.

A’.(22) For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shewed.

Acts 4:27-30

A  (27)  For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,

B  (28)  For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.

C  (29)  And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,

B’  (30)  By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done

A’  by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

ACTS 23:6,7

A (6) But when Paul perceived that the one part were SADDUCEES,

B (6) and the other PHARISEES,

C (6) he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.

B1 (7) And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between THE PHARISEES

A1 (7) and THE SADDUCEES: and the multitude was divided.

Acts 3:17-26

(needs more work?)

A.(17)  And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers. (18) But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled. (19)

B. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

C.(20)  And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:

B’.(21) Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things,

A’. which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

A.(22) For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

B. (23) And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

B’. (24) Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.

A’. (25)  Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers,saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. (26) Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

Acts 2:41-47

A.(41) Then they that gladly received his word were baptized:and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

B. (42) And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

C.(43a)  And fear came upon every soul:

D. (43b) and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

C’. (44) And all that believed were together, and had all things common; (45) And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

B’. (46) And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple,
and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with
gladness and singleness of heart, (47a) Praising God, and having favour with all the people.

A’. (47b) And the Lord added to the ecclesia daily such as should be saved.

Acts 4:5-13

(From Ruth)

A.(5-6) … rulers, and elders, and scribes, and Annas the high priest and Caiaphas and John and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.

B.(7) And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?

C.(8) Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said unto them, Rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,

D.(9) If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;

E.(10) Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead,

D’. even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

C’.(11) This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

B’.(12) Neither is there salvation in any other:for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

A’.(13) Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

Acts 7:20-35

A. 20 In which time Moses was born, and was exceeding fair, and nourished up in his father’s house three months: 21 And when he was cast out, Pharaoh’s daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son. 22 And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds. 23 And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel. 24 And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian: 25 For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not.

B. 26 And the next day he shewed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one again, saying, Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to another? 27  But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us?

C. 28 Wilt thou kill me, as thou diddest the Egyptian yesterday?

D. 29 Then fled Moses at this saying, and was a stranger in the land of Madian, where he begat two sons.

E. 30 And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.

F. 31 When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it,

G.  the voice of the Lord came unto him, Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

F’. 32 Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold.

E’. 33 Then said the Lord to him,

D’.  Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.

C’. 34 I have seen, I have seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send thee into Egypt.

B’. 35 This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge?

A’. the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.

Acts 11:19-26

A. (19) Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only.

B. (20) And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which, when they were come to Antioch, spake unto the Grecians, preaching the Lord Jesus.

C.(21) And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord.

D. (22) Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem:and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch.

E. (23) Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.

D’. (24a)For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith:

C’. (24b) and much people was added unto the Lord.

B’. (25-26a) Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul: And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch.

A’. (26b) And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

Acts 28:23-31

A. And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets,

B. from morning till evening.

C. And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not. And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed, after that Paul had spoken one word,

D. Well spake the Holy Ghost by Esaias (Salvation of Yah) the prophet unto our fathers, Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:

E. For the heart of this people is waxed gross,

F. and their ears are dull of hearing,

G. and their eyes have they closed;

G’. lest they should see with their eyes,

F’. and hear with their ears,

E’. and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

D’. Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.

C’. And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.

B’. And Paul dwelt two whole years

A’. in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.
