Acts 3:14-15

Context
3:14 But you rejected 1  the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a man who was a murderer be released to you. 3:15 You killed 2  the Originator 3  of life, whom God raised 4  from the dead. To this fact we are witnesses! 5 

1 tn Or “denied,” “disowned.”

2 tn Or “You put to death.”

3 tn Or “Founder,” “founding Leader.”

4 sn Whom God raised. God is the main actor here, as he testifies to Jesus and vindicates him.

5 tn Grk “whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses.” The two consecutive relative clauses make for awkward English style, so the second was begun as a new sentence with the words “to this fact” supplied in place of the Greek relative pronoun to make a complete sentence in English.

sn We are witnesses. Note the two witnesses here, Peter and John (Acts 5:32; Heb 2:3-4).
