Webb already noted of the possible connection between ANISTHMI in  
Deut. 18:15,18 and Acts 13:33. In Acts 3:22 PROFHTHN hUMIN ANASTHSEI  
KURIOS hO QEOS hUMWN there is no doubt about this. For this reason, I  
wonder why Danker 3d ed. (ANISTHMI 2) appears to read hUMIN PRWTON  
ANASTHSAS hO QEOS TON PAIDA AUTOU v26 as a reference to Jesus'  
resurrection. He notes parenthetically that this is "wordplay" with  
ANASTHSEI in v22. I understand that Luther and Beza read it this way  
but I cannot imagine why.
