3: 18In this way God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets (prophētēs), that his Messiah would suffer.
3: 21who must remain in heaven until the time of universal restoration that God announced long ago through his holy prophets (prophētēs).
3: 22Moses said, 'The Lord your God will raise up for you from your own people a prophet (prophētēs) like me. You must listen to whatever he tells you.
3: 23And it will be that everyone who does not listen to that prophet (prophētēs) will be utterly rooted out of the people.'
3: 24And all the prophets (prophētēs), as many as have spoken, from Samuel and those after him, also predicted these days.
3: 25You are the descendants of the prophets (prophētēs) and of the covenant that God gave to your ancestors, saying to Abraham, 'And in your descendants all the families of the earth shall be blessed.'
7: 37This is the Moses who said to the Israelites, 'God will raise up a prophet (prophētēs) for you from your own people as he raised me up.'

7: 48Yet the Most High does not dwell in houses made with human hands; as the prophet (prophētēs) says,
7: 52Which of the prophets (prophētēs) did your ancestors not persecute? They killed those who foretold the coming of the Righteous One, and now you have become his betrayers and murderers.
8: 28and was returning home; seated in his chariot, he was reading the prophet (prophētēs) Isaiah.
8: 30So Philip ran up to it and heard him reading the prophet (prophētēs) Isaiah. He asked, "Do you understand what you are reading?"
8: 34The eunuch asked Philip, "About whom, may I ask you, does the prophet (prophētēs) say this, about himself or about someone else?"
10: 43All the prophets (prophētēs) testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name."
11: 27At that time prophets (prophētēs) came down from Jerusalem to Antioch.
13: 1Now in the church at Antioch there were prophets (prophētēs) and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen a member of the court of Herod the ruler, and Saul.
13: 15After the reading of the law and the prophets (prophētēs), the officials of the synagogue sent them a message, saying, "Brothers, if you have any word of exhortation for the people, give it."
13: 20for about four hundred fifty years. After that he gave them judges until the time of the prophet (prophētēs) Samuel.
13: 27Because the residents of Jerusalem and their leaders did not recognize him or understand the words of the prophets (prophētēs) that are read every sabbath, they fulfilled those words by condemning him.
13: 40Beware, therefore, that what the prophets (prophētēs) said does not happen to you:
15: 15This agrees with the words of the prophets (prophētēs), as it is written,
15: 32Judas and Silas, who were themselves prophets (prophētēs), said much to encourage and strengthen the believers.
21: 10While we were staying there for several days, a prophet (prophētēs) named Agabus came down from Judea.
24: 14But this I admit to you, that according to the Way, which they call a sect, I worship the God of our ancestors, believing everything laid down according to the law or written in the prophets (prophētēs).
26: 22To this day I have had help from God, and so I stand here, testifying to both small and great, saying nothing but what the prophets (prophētēs) and Moses said would take place:
26: 27King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets (prophētēs)? I know that you believe."
28: 23After they had set a day to meet with him, they came to him at his lodgings in great numbers. From morning until evening he explained the matter to them, testifying to the kingdom of God and trying to convince them about Jesus both from the law of Moses and from the prophets (prophētēs).
28: 25So they disagreed with each other; and as they were leaving, Paul made one further statement: "The Holy Spirit was right in saying to your ancestors through the prophet (prophētēs) Isaiah,
