upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6
"And the King shall answer and say unto them,
Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one
of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." Matthew 25:40
"Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made
that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
"Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter
and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you
in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall
receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
"For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off,
even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
"And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying,
Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
"Then they that gladly received his word were baptized:
and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls."
