A mini-teaching on parts of Acts 3

(Use your own Bible versions for comparison, as the following passages came from the Aramaic English New Testament, and the words might not be familiar.*)

Acts 3: 6. Shimon said to him, “Gold and silver I have not, but that which I have I will give to you in the name of Y’shua the Mashiyach the Nazarene.[1] Rise up and walk!” 7. And he took him by his right hand and raised him up. And at that moment his feet and his ankles were established. 8. And he leaped up (and) stood and walked and entered with them into the temple while walking and leaping and praising Elohim.[2] 9. And all the people saw him (while) walking and praising Elohim. 10. And they recognized that he was that vagrant who would sit all day and ask for alms at the gate that was called Beautiful. And they were filled with amazement and wonder concerning the thing that happened.


[1] In the First Century there were many who made claims of being Mashiyach, and Y’shua was also a common name. By adding the name of the small village “Nazraya” (Nazareth) from where he resided, there was no confusion or doubt as to who was being referenced. Y’shua taught his followers that they were kept by the power of the Name of YHWH, not his own name (John 17:11). The name of Y’shua functions as an affirmation of faith that “YHWH is Salvation,” and that he is YHWH’s Mashiyach, and “from Nazraya” provides concise identity.

[2] Notice praise goes to Elohim (YHWH), because prayer and thanks is offered to YHWH through the vessel whom He chose to bring salvation. But salvation is ultimately from YHWH. No one believes they start the engine of their vehicle and it drives them to their destination; no one confuses whether a car or engine can do everything on its own merits. It is YHWH who provides Salvation, but it is Y’shua who is the “vehicle” whereby this is accomplished.

Continuing with Acts 3:

Acts 3: 11. And while he was holding Shimon and Yochanan, all the people ran while marveling to them to the porch, which was called Solomon’s. 12. And when Shimon saw (it), he answered and said to them, “Men, sons of Israel, why are you in wonder at this (man) or at us? Why do you stare at us you, as if it is by our own strength or by our authority we did this that this (man) might walk? 13. The Elohim of Awraham and of Yitz’chak and of Ya’akov, the Elohim of our forefathers[3] has glorified His Son. He, Y’shua, whom you delivered up and denied before the face of Peelatos after he saw it fitting to let him go.

14. But you denied the Set Apart and Just, and you requested for yourselves a murderous man to be given to you. 15. And that Prince of Life you killed whom Elohim raised from the dead,[4] and we are all of us his witnesses. 16. And in the faith of His name, this man that you see and know you, He has strengthened and healed. And the faith that is in him has given him this wholeness before all of you. 17. But now our Brothers I know that you did this in ignorance, as did your leaders. 18. And Elohim, according to that which beforehand He preached by the mouths of all the prophets, that His Mashiyach would suffer has fulfilled (it) in this manner.


[3] Exodus 3:6, 15

[4] Notice that ELOHIM raised Messiah Y’shua from the dead! This reveals YHWH is, and always was, in charge! This quote points to the human being side of Mashiyach, although the mark of him being Mashiyach is the indwelling of the Spirit of YHWH. The human side of Mashiyach or “Mari/Maran” refers to the human side of Y’shua that voluntarily submits to YHWH.

Continuing with Acts 3:

Acts 3:19. Repent, therefore, and be turned so that your sins be blotted out and times of rest come to you from before the presence of Master YHWH. 20. And He sent to you that which He had prepared for you, the Mashiyach Y’shua, 21. Whom it is necessary for Heaven to receive until the fullness of the times of all these (things) that Elohim spoke by the mouth of His Set Apart prophets of old.[5] 22. For Moshe said (that) A prophet will raise up for you from Master YHWH from your brothers. Hear him like me in everything that he speaks to you, 23. and it will be (that) every soul which does not hear that prophet, that soul will perish from his people.[6]

24. And the prophets, all of them, Shmuel and those who were after him, spoke and preached concerning those days. 25. You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant, that which Elohim placed on our forefathers when He said to Awraham (that), In your seed all the tribes of the earth will be blessed.[7] 26. First appointed to you, Elohim sent His Son blessing you if you turn and repent from your evils.” (AENT)


[5] A continuum of Justice from the very beginning of time (of old) through the Tanakh; Jeremiah 28:8; Ezekiel 38:17 and into the Ketuvim Netzarim (writings of the Netzarim) is the prophetic authority of YHWH revealed to all who enter the Malchut (Kingdom of) Elohim (Luke 1:70; 1 Peter 1:10-12; Revelation 10:7). The office of Mashiyach has always been predominate in the Malchut Elohim and the prophets of YHWH hold the keys to understanding and discerning this very fact.

[6] Deuteronomy 18:15-16

[7] Genesis 22:18; 26:4
