Repent...so that refreshing may come...

When the Day of Pentecost came….

Acts 2:1-13 Pentecost, also known as ‘The Feast of Weeks’ or Shavuot the Day of Firstfruits Numbers 28 v 26, was a festival of joy and thanksgiving celebrating the completion of the harvest season.

“…the scriptures had to be fulfilled…”

"...the scriptures had to be fulfilled..."

Acts 1:15-26 Luke’s attention to detail helps us to know that the new covenant community began with about 120 disciples of Jesus devoting themselves to prayer for 10 days. This passage commences with Peter quoting the scriptures, “….the scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke beforehand by the mouth of David…” Acts […]
