Acts 3:18 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

18 but God has thus brought to fulfillment what he had announced beforehand through the mouth of all the prophets,[a] that his Messiah would suffer.

Footnotes:

  1. 3:18 Through the mouth of all the prophets: Christian prophetic insight into the Old Testament saw the crucifixion and death of Jesus as the main import of messianic prophecy. The Jews themselves did not anticipate a suffering Messiah; they usually understood the Servant Song in Is 52:13–53:12 to signify their own suffering as a people. In his typical fashion (cf. Lk 18:31; 24:25, 27, 44), Luke does not specify the particular Old Testament prophecies that were fulfilled by Jesus. See also note on Lk 24:26.
