"The of the New Testament appealed to the firsthand knowledge of their readers or listeners concerning the facts and the evidence about the person of Jesus Christ.
The writers not only said, "Look, we saw this or we heart that...," but they turned the tables around and right in front of their most adverse critics said, "You also know about these things... You saw them; you yourselves know about it."
One had better be careful when he says to his opposition, "You know this also," because if he is not right in the details, it will be "shoved right back down his throat."
"Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know..."
