NET © Notes

tn Or “forefathers”; Grk “fathers.”

sn Which…persecute. The rhetorical question suggests they persecuted them all.

tn Grk “And they.” Because of the difference between Greek style, which often begins sentences or clauses with “and,” and English style, which generally does not, καί (kai) has not been translated here.

sn The Righteous One is a reference to Jesus Christ.

sn Whose betrayers and murderers you have now become. The harsh critique has OT precedent (1 Kgs 19:10-14; Neh 9:26; 2 Chr 36:16).
