Acts 2:22

Context

2:22 “Men of Israel, 1  listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man clearly attested to you by God with powerful deeds, 2  wonders, and miraculous signs 3  that God performed among you through him, just as you yourselves know –

Acts 2:43

Context
2:43 Reverential awe 4  came over everyone, 5  and many wonders and miraculous signs 6  came about by the apostles.

1 tn Or “Israelite men,” although this is less natural English. The Greek term here is ἀνήρ (anhr), which only exceptionally is used in a generic sense of both males and females. In this context, it is conceivable that this is a generic usage, although it can also be argued that Peter’s remarks were addressed primarily to the men present, even if women were there.

2 tn Or “miraculous deeds.”

3 tn Again, the context indicates the miraculous nature of these signs, and this is specified in the translation.

4 tn Or “Fear.”

5 tn Grk “on every soul” (here “soul” is an idiom for the whole person).

6 tn In this context the miraculous nature of these signs is implied. Cf. BDAG 920 s.v. σημεῖον 2.a.
