Luckyd,

It doesn't sound nearly as confusing in the King James, Acts 3:20"And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:"

Hope this helps,

Murray

Is it any wonder that our Churches today sound like Babel when the Pastor asks the Congregation to read aloud from God’s Word?

The King James is far superior to all the other versions, and supports the "Majority Text".


God bless,

 Re: acts chatper 3 verse 20

This is a very interesting verse and the significance is easily missed in the KJV.[color=0000ff]“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, [b]when[/b] the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;” (Acts 3:19 KJV)

“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, [b]so that[/b] times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,” (Acts 3:19 NKJV)

“Repent therefore and be converted, for the blotting out of your sins, [b]so that[/b] times of refreshing may come from [the] presence of the Lord,” (Acts 3:19 DRBY)

"Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, [b]that[/b] times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago." (Acts 3:19-20 ESV)

"Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, [b]in order that[/b] times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time." (Acts 3:19-21 NASV)[/color]Whe almost all the other versions change a word like this it is time to look closer. (unless you are a conspiracty theorist, when it would be time to close your eyes even tighter.;-))

The Greek word is [url=http://www.blueletterbible.org/cgi-bin/words.pl?strongs=3704&page=1&flag_full=1]hopOs[/url] and once is it translated 'when' in the KJV. In the vast majority of instances it is translated 'that'. The point that the other translations seem to be making is that there is a sense of sequence here in which one thing has to happen before another. In this case it might imply that 'being converted and having your sins blotted out' must precede the 'times of refreshing' and the 'sending of Jesus Christ'.

The next question is "is this on a personal or national level?"
