Strong (p. 30), “…(BECAUSE) OF, (up-)on (behalf of)..”

But The Word “FOR”(EIS, Gk. No. 1519)In Acts 2:38Means “INTO.”

Strong (p. 26), “a primary preposition; to or INTO (indicating the point reached or entered), of PLACE, TIME…”

VV.40-41, 47

What Was “THE PROMISE” (Gen.22:18;Cf.Gal.3:16,26-29;Heb.10:36)?
