Audio for Feb. 10 2013 on Acts 2 now available: "What in the World is Jesus Doing and Teaching through Pentecost"
As we look at the events of Acts 2 from the focus of Acts 1:1 (i.e. “What Jesus [continues to] do and teach),” it is clear that Jesus is doing and teaching exactly what the Father promised and Jesus taught (i.e. “But wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about” – Acts 1:4-5). While the world community present were initially “bewildered” (2:6), “utterly amazed” (2:7), “amazed and perplexed” (2:12) and asked, “What does this mean?” (2:13) and while others “made fun of them” (2:13), Jesus work and teaching through Pentecost is clear including empowering his servants to speak of him with Spirit-given understanding of the Scriptures fulfilled in him and moving hearts to repentance, acceptance of him, and participation in the new community formed by him.
