    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:38

    Os sea pues notorio, varones hermanos, que por ste os es anunciada remisin de pecados,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 13:38

    Verse 38. Be it known unto you, therefore] This is the legitimate conclusion: seeing the word of
    God is true, and he has promised an endless succession to the seed of David; seeing David and all his family have failed in reference to the political kingdom, a spiritual kingdom and a spiritual succession must be intended, that the sure covenant and all its blessings may be continued. Again: seeing the person by whom this is to be done is to see no corruption;-seeing David has died, and has seen (fallen under the power of) corruption;-seeing Jesus the Christ has wrought all the miracles which the prophets said he should work;-seeing he has suffered all the indignities which your prophets said he must suffer;-seeing after his death he has most incontestably risen again from the dead, and has not fallen under the power of corruption,-then he must be the very person in whom all the predictions are fulfilled, and the person through whom all the blessings of the covenant must come.

    Through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins] See the notes on chap. v. 30, 31. Remission of sins, the removal of the power, guilt, and pollution of sin comes alone through this man, whom ye crucified, and who is risen from the dead.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 38. Be it known unto you, therefore, men and brethren , etc.] The apostle having discoursed concerning the incarnation of Christ, his death and resurrection, proceeds to take notice of some particular benefits and blessings of grace arising from thence, which are published and made known to the sons of men in the everlasting Gospel, as were now to the Jews by Paul and Barnabas; such as forgiveness of sins through the blood of Christ, and justification by his righteousness; the former of them is mentioned in this verse, the latter in the next: that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins ; forgiveness of sins, which is sometimes expressed by a non-imputation of them, a non-remembrance of them, a covering and putting them away, and a blotting them out, is an act of free grace and mercy, and yet is through the blood of Christ; through that believers have it; Christ is exalted as a Prince and a Saviour to give it, having by his blood procured it; and this is a principal doctrine of the Gospel, which is published in his name, and which the light of nature and law of Moses know nothing of, and cannot ascertain; the prophets bear testimony to this truth, that everyone that believes in Christ shall receive the remission of sins, of all his sins. That there is a God is known by the light of nature, and that sin is an offence unto him; but by it is not known in what way offended Deity is appeased; nor does it, nor can it assure any that God will forgive sin on any account whatever; not on account of mercy in him, nor on account of good works, or of repentance in them; God, as the God of nature, does not forgive sin, but as the God of grace: and though the law of Moses declares what is good, and gives knowledge of evil, yet admits not of repentance as a satisfaction for sin committed; nor does it represent God as merciful, but as just, and so accuses, condemns, and kills: the doctrine of forgiveness is a pure doctrine of the Gospel; and when it is preached aright, it is preached through Christ, not through the works of the law, not through repentance, nor through faith, nor through the absolute mercy of God, but through Christ, through the blood of Christ, which was shed to obtain it in a way consistent with the justice of God; and through his hands it is given. When Christ is called a man, it must not be thought that he is a mere man; he is God as well as man; had he been a mere man, forgiveness of sin could not have been by his blood, or through his name, or for his sake; it is because he is God, truly and properly God, that there is a virtue in his blood to take away sin, and cleanse from it; (see 1 John 1:7) Besides, the word man is not in the original text, it is only through this is preached to you; that is, through this glorious and divine person, who, though he died as man, and was buried, yet saw no corruption, and is now raised from the dead, and is at the right hand of God. Some copies read dia touto , because of this, or for this reason; seeing he is raised from the dead, therefore the doctrine of the remission of sins is preached; for if he had died, and had not risen again, there could have been no pardon by his blood, nor justification by his righteousness; (see Romans 4:25).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 38-41 - Let all that hear the
    gospel of Christ, know these two things: 1. Tha through this Man, who died and rose again, is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins. Your sins, though many and great, may be forgiven and they may be so without any injury to God's honour. 2. It is by Christ only that those who believe in him, and none else, are justifie from all things; from all the guilt and stain of sin, from which the could not be justified by the law of Moses. The great concern of convinced sinners is, to be justified, to be acquitted from all their guilt, and accepted as righteous in God's sight, for if any is lef charged upon the sinner, he is undone. By Jesus Christ we obtain complete justification; for by him a complete atonement was made for sin. We are justified, not only by him as our Judge but by him as the Lord our Righteousness. What the law could not do for us, in that is was weak, the gospel of Christ does. This is the most needful blessing bringing in every other. The threatenings are warnings; what we ar told will come upon impenitent sinners, is designed to awaken us to beware lest it come upon us. It ruins many, that they despise religion Those that will not wonder and be saved, shall wonder and perish.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    13:38 {Through this man} (dia toutou). this very man whom the
    Jews had crucified and whom God had raised from the dead. Remission of sins (afesis hamartiwn) is proclaimed (kataggelletai) to you. this is the keynote of Paul's message as it had been that of Peter at Pentecost (#2:38; 5:31; 10:43). Cf. #26:18. this glorious message Paul now presses home in his exhortation.
