Przesłanie dotyczące grzechu i nawrócenia w Dziejach Apostolskich
THE MESSAGE OF SIN AND REPENTANCE IN ACTS
Languages of publication
The message of sin and repentance is one of the crucial themes of the second part of Luke’s work. The author stresses Israel’s guilt and the gravity of every sin. Using the case of Ananias and Sapphira he emphasizes the fact that sins are punished. That is why Peter in his speeches points the necessity of repentance and penance and exhorts people to be baptised ‘in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins’ (Acts 2, 38). Giving up sin is the precondition for forgiveness, which is stated in the fragment on Simon in Acts 8, 18-24.
