Acts 3,25-26 is the conclusion of Peter's sermon to his fellow Jews delivered at the “portico called Solomon's”. Having proclaimed the good news Peter calls the Jerusalemites to repent and then proceeds to refer to the prophecies which confirm his gospel. Thus, after mentioning Moses and Samuel with “those who came after him”, Peter turns to the very beginnings of Israel, that is, to the divine promise made to Abraham.
