Acts 2 CSB
1 When the day of Pentecost had arrived, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like that of a violent rushing wind came from heaven, and it filled the whole house where they were staying. 3 They saw tongues like flames of fire that separated and rested on each one of them. 4 Then they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them. 5 Now there were Jews staying in Jerusalem, devout people from every nation under heaven. 6 When this sound occurred, a crowd came together and was confused because each one heard them speaking in his own language. 7 They were astounded and amazed, saying, “Look, aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 How is it that each of us can hear them in our own native language? 9 Parthians, Medes, Elamites; those who live in Mesopotamia, in Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome (both Jews and converts), 11 Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the magnificent acts of God in our own tongues.” 12 They were all astounded and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 13 But some sneered and said, “They’re drunk on new wine.” 14 Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice, and proclaimed to them: “Fellow Jews and all you residents of Jerusalem, let me explain this to you and pay attention to my words. 15 For these people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it’s only nine in the morning. 16 On the contrary, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel: 17 And it will be in the last days, says God, that I will pour out my Spirit on all people; then your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. 18 I will even pour out my Spirit on my servants in those days, both men and women and they will prophesy. 19 I will display wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below: blood and fire and a cloud of smoke. 20 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the great and glorious day of the Lord comes. 21 Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. 22 “Fellow Israelites, listen to these words: This Jesus of Nazareth was a man attested to you by God with miracles, wonders, and signs that God did among you through him, just as you yourselves know. 23 Though he was delivered up according to God’s determined plan and foreknowledge, you used lawless people to nail him to a cross and kill him. 24 God raised him up, ending the pains of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by death. 25 For David says of him: I saw the Lord ever before me; because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. 26 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices. Moreover, my flesh will rest in hope, 27 because you will not abandon me in Hades or allow your holy one to see decay. 28 You have revealed the paths of life to me; you will fill me with gladness in your presence. 29 “Brothers and sisters, I can confidently speak to you about the patriarch David: He is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 30 Since he was a prophet, he knew that God had sworn an oath to him to seat one of his descendants on his throne. 31 Seeing what was to come, he spoke concerning the resurrection of the Messiah: He was not abandoned in Hades, and his flesh did not experience decay. 32 “God has raised this Jesus; we are all witnesses of this. 33 Therefore, since he has been exalted to the right hand of God and has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit, he has poured out what you both see and hear. 34 For it was not David who ascended into the heavens, but he himself says: The Lord declared to my Lord, ‘Sit at my right hand 35 until I make your enemies your footstool.’ 36 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know with certainty that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.” 37 When they heard this, they were pierced to the heart and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles: “Brothers, what should we do?” 38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and for your children, and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” 40 With many other words he testified and strongly urged them, saying, “Be saved from this corrupt generation!” 41 So those who accepted his message were baptized, and that day about three thousand people were added to them. 42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles. 44 Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. 45 They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with joyful and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. Every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.
Acts
Acts 2:37–43 ESV
37 Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” 38 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation.” 41 So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls. 42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles.
Acts 2:37 CSB
37 When they heard this, they were pierced to the heart and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles: “Brothers, what should we do?”
Acts 2:37 ESV
37 Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”
What shall we do-the idea is the past was one big mistake and seeks to set the future right.
The term pirced to the heart means to be stabbed with a knife. It came to be used to express deep anxiety or perfound regret This is the only time it is used in the New Testement.
The people relized Just what they had done in crusifying Jesus there hearts were broken. Everyone had a hand in the deathe of Christ.
Note the power of the cross.
Those who herd Peter’s words took them personally, many of them had lickly agreed with the action of putting Jesus to death. Peters information of the status and dignity of Jesus came as a major shock to them, and they were pirced to the heart by what he said.
Acts 2:38 ESV
38 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:38 CSB
38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:39 ESV
39 For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”
Circumcision served as the visible external marker of inclusion in the covenent comunity of Isriel, so also Baptisim serves as the public sign and seal of a persons solidarity with Christ .
In the name of Jesus Christ -Baptisim identifies a person with Jesus in his life death , burial, and reserectio
Repent-in denotes change of mind (note the difference between im sorry and will you forgive me)
Baptized.for the remission of sins a visible seal of that remission
Baptize here is refeing to Baptisim of the spirit not water Baptisim
Baptize here is refeing to Baptisim of the spirit not water Baptisim
Baptized is not used here because it has anything to do with salvation, but rather simply accomponies salvation becaues it is expected.
Acts 2:40 ESV
40 And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation.”
Acts 2:39 CSB
39 For the promise is for you and for your children, and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”
Acts 2:41 ESV
41 So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls.
This pasage has sometimes been taken as a way to justify for infint baptisim. if we link it with the context, we note that the prophecy in verse 17 thinks of children who are old enough to prophesy and vese 38 speeks of receiving forgivnessand the spirit in neither case are infents obviously involved. The point of the phrase is rather to express the unlimited mercy of God which embraces the hearers and subsequent generations of there decendents. also rember when they crusified Christ they said “i

43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles.
Luke indicates here that he only has givin a summery of what happened. He urged the people to secape the fate that would otherwise befal them.It is applied in the old testement to those who rebelled against God in the wilderness, and in the Nt it applies to those who reject Jesus.
With many other words-denotes that this is a summery that Luke gave and not Peter’s entire message.
Acts 2:44 ESV
44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common.
Acts 2:41 CSB
41 So those who accepted his message were baptized, and that day about three thousand people were added to them.
Those who accepted his message were baptized- It is dificult to imagine how 3,000 could be baptized by water all at one time, this dificulty is removed by concluding that this was spirit Baptisism and not water Baptisim
Many of Peter’s hearers accepted what he said and indicated there acceptence by being baptized the resault was 3,000 to the church. this figure is large and is likly not an exact figure, but how it is discribes a a large figure. It would not have been unusual though for a crowd this large to gather
Acts 2:42 CSB
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer.
Luke lastly records what happened to the new converts. four activities are stated. These are four seperate things they devoted themselves to:
Teaching- They contuned to learn under the teaching of the apposles.
Fellowshiop-great quality of togetherness.
Breaking of Bread
Prayer -The early christians knew that they could not meet life in thir own strength and that they did not need to. They always went to God before they went out to the world. Christians live in reverence because they know that the whole earth is the temple of the living God
