Jesus is the Christ Messiah (Acts 17:3)

Paul explained

And proved

That it was necessary

For the Christ Messiah

To suffer

And to rise

From the dead.

He said.

‘This is the Christ Messiah


Whom I am proclaiming

To you.’”

διανοίγων καὶ παρατιθέμενος ὅτι τὸν Χριστὸν ἔδει παθεῖν καὶ ἀναστῆναι ἐκ νεκρῶν, καὶ ὅτι οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ Χριστός, ὁ Ἰησοῦς, ὃν ἐγὼ καταγγέλλω ὑμῖν.

The author of Acts indicated that Paul explained (διανοίγων) and proved (καὶ παρατιθέμενος) that it was necessary (ἔδει) for the Christ Messiah (ὅτι τὸν Χριστὸν) to suffer (παθεῖν) and to rise (καὶ ἀναστῆναι) from the dead (ἐκ νεκρῶν).  He said that this is the Christ Messiah (καὶ ὅτι οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ Χριστός), Jesus (ὁ Ἰησοῦς), whom he was proclaiming to them (ὃν ἐγὼ καταγγέλλω ὑμῖν).  Paul continued to show how Jesus was the Christ Messiah of the Israelite expectations in sacred writings.  He proclaimed that this messiah had to suffer, die, and rise from the dead.  Paul was always clear in his message proclamation.  It is unclear how many understood what he was talking about.  Are you clear when you speak?
