and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you--even Jesus.
King James Bible

and that he may send Christ Jesus, who was ordained for you before,

and He may send Jesus Christ who before hath been preached to you,

Which before was preached unto you - Instead of προκεκηρυγμενον, before preached, ABCDE, fifty-three others, both the Syriac, all the Arabic, the Armenian, Chrysostom, and others, have προκεχειρισμενον, who was before designed, or appointed; and this is without doubt the true reading. Christ crucified was the person whom God had from the beginning appointed or designed for the Jewish people. It was not a triumphant Messiah which they were to expect; but one who was to suffer and die. Jesus was this person; and by believing in him, as thus suffering and dying for their sins, he should be again sent, in the power of his Spirit, to justify and save them.

Whether Christ's Resurrection Ought to have Been Manifested to All?
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,
Heaven must receive him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets.
