Acts 2:22-24

22Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: 23Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: 24Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

Comment: In this passage Luke appeals to the people's own eyewitness to Jesus' miracles as evidence that God was supporting Jesus in everything he did. The idea is that, since God was behind everything Jesus did, even his death on the cross was prearranged according to the plan of God. If God was behind all those things, the miracles and even his death, it would not be a great stretch to believe also that God would raise him from the dead.
