If you refer to Daniel 9 the context makes cleare it refers to the Jew/Israel only.  Not so with Acts 2:39.

 Hi duval , but you never answered why  ETHNOS  is not  used in Acts 2:39 Huh

 You wrote , but will never explain , can you ??

 It is always  AMUSING  to me how you say I am DESPERATE , but you can almost never answer a simple question like Acts 2:39 Huh

Hi Dan
Ethnos is not in Acts 2:39 because the word limits to a nation, a people etc.  The promise of Acts 2 knows no boundaries.  Very very simple Dan.

 Hi duval , and I am rolling up , when the  SHAME is yours and   COMPLETELY  , not seeing the  CONTEXT .

 #1 , The context for you , which you are  ALWAYS  AVOIDING in Acts 2:36 , is the House of Israel !!!

 #2 , Verse 37  is still Jewish !!

 #3 , Peter  ( do I dare ask what is the context in verse 37 , JUST GO AHEAD AN ASK , guess I WILL )   the brethren ask ,  (  just go ahead and ask again , guess I will  ,  WHAT IS THE  CONTEXT  )   and I believe it is Jewish .

 #4 , Then Peter tells the Jews to Repent and be Baptized  , and how Jewish is that , but duval will not agree !!!

 #5 , Then Peter says that this  PROMISE , of the Holy  Spirit is  unto the Jews that Peter was preaching to in verse 38 ,  BUT  unto your Children .

 Only those with ears to  HEAR will see that there is a Near view and a FAR VIEW as Joel 2:28 reveals .

 Notice what  " afar "  means in Jer 46:27-28 .   dan p

Acts 2:39 KJV  For the promise is unto you, and to your children (the Jewish people), and to all that are afar off (the Gentiles), even as many as the Lord our God shall call (whosoever will may come).

 Hi nChrist and I have posted  enough that anyone can see and make their decision and check the  CONTEXT .

Yes the context is pretty simple:  The Promise is to the Jews, the Gentiles, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. There's an obvious reason why the promise was not limited to "you and your children". There's also an obvious reason why "and to all that are afar off" was specifically added. You're right - the context couldn't be more simple. All that the Lord our God shall call does include all - not limited to the Jews. Anyone can obviously see this Verse applies to ALL. Every Bible Scholar and commentator I can find agrees completely - ALL - the human race - whosoever will may come.
