Acts 2:14-17 – Will old men prophesy in their dreams?

Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! No, this is what was […]

Acts 2:9-13 – Is speaking in tongues for today?

Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs–we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What […]

Acts 2:5-8 – Does God equip the called?/What is my calling?

Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all of these who are speaking Galileans?

Acts 2:1-4 – What is the origin of the church?/What is Pentecost?

Acts 1:21:23 – Should churches pursue diverse leadership?

Acts 1:18-20 – What are the dangers of misinterpreting Scripture?

(With the payment he received for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out. Everyone in Jerusalem heard about this, so they called that field in their language, Akeldama, that is, Field of Blood.) “For,” said Peter, “it is written in the Book […]

Acts 1:15-17 – Should we seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit?

In those days Peter stood up among the believers (a group number about a hundred and twenty) and said, “Brothers and sisters, the Scripture had to be fulfilled in which the Holy Spirit spoke long ago through David concerning Judas, who served as guide for those who arrested Jesus. He was one of our number […]
