Acts 3:15

3:15 You killed 1  the Originator 2  of life, whom God raised 3  from the dead. To this fact we are witnesses! 4 

Acts 5:31

5:31 God exalted him 5  to his right hand as Leader 6  and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. 7 

1 tn Or “You put to death.”

2 tn Or “Founder,” “founding Leader.”

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

4 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).

5 tn Grk “This one God exalted” (emphatic).

6 tn Or “Founder” (of a movement).

7 tn Or “to give repentance and forgiveness of sins to Israel.”
