Behold ...Original Acts Chapter 3
When Peter saw that, he answered unto the people. Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this, or why look ye so steadfastly on us, as though by our own power or holiness, we had made this man go? The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers hath glorified his son Jesus, whom ye delivered, and denied in the presence of Pilate when he had judged him to be loosed. But ye denied the holy and just, and desired a murderer to be given you, and killed the Lord of life, whom God hath raised from death, of the which we are witnesses. And his name through the faith of his name, hath made this man sound, whom ye see and know. And the faith which is by him, hath given to him this health in the presence of you all.
kjv = 14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; 15 And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.
niv =  You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead.
rsv =  and killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.
nasb =  but put to death the Prince of life, the one whom God raised from the dead, a fact to which we are witnesses.
all other "bibles of man" are:
either "author of life" ..."maker of life" or "prince of life" or else ...
none would have you see Jesus as "Lord of life"
