Wesley's Notes for Acts 2:1


2:1 At the pentecost of Sinai, in the Old Testament, and the pentecost of Jerusalem, in the New, where the two grand manifestations of God, the legal and the evangelical; the one from the mountain, and the other from heaven; the terrible, and the merciful one. They were all with one accord in one place - So here was a conjunction of company, minds, and place; the whole hundred and twenty being present.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 2:1


Ac 2:1 The Day of Pentecost SUMMARY OF ACTS 2: The Disciples Gathered Together. The Baptism of the Spirit. The Apostles Speak as the Spirit Gives Utterance. The Gospel Heard in Many Tongues. The Theory of the Scoffers. Peter's Sermon. The Prophecy of Joel Fulfilled. Christ and the Resurrection Preached. The Jews Convicted of Crucifying the Lord. The Inquiry of Convicted Sinners. Peter's Reply. Three Thousand Baptized. Continuing in the Apostles' Doctrine. The Progress of the Church. When the day of Pentecost was fully come. The entire period between it and the passover, the waiting period of the disciples, was filled full. Pentecost, one of the three great annual festivals of the Jews, lasted only one day, was on the fiftieth day from the morrow after the passover Sabbath (Le 23:15-22). The Savior, crucified on Friday, was in the tomb on the passover Sabbath, and rose on Sunday, the day from whence the count began. The Sunday following would be the eighth day, and the fiftieth day would fall on Sunday, the first day of the eighth week. Hence, the ancient church observed Pentecost on the first day of the week. For fuller discussion, see Meyer, Howson and Milligan on this passage. All agree that Pentecost come on Sunday. Pentecost was the feast of the grain harvest, and was also held by the Jews to be the anniversary of the giving of the law (Ex 23:16 34:22,23). They were all . . . in one place. Not only the apostles, but the hundred and twenty disciples. They probably had an intimation that the promised day had come.

Discussion for Acts 2

  • Theresa Jerome
    They all had a relationship with the almighty, they all were on the mind of the almighty, because they all was in one place with God, they were all hit by the rushing wind, they didn't only get hit they were all filled with the holy Spirit and fire,and began to speak in many different languages as they had access to the holy Spirit.

    An answer to Magnocrat question v5,
    Yes they were devout men meaning they had deep religious feelings and committment, dedicated, loyal, faithful, steadfast, firm and zealous.
  • Jacob
    You receive the Spirit today by faith Gal 3:14. Peter realized this dispensational change by Acts 15:9. They received the Holy Ghost before water baptism in Acts 10:47. Peter never preached Acts 2:38's message after he realized the mystery revealed to the apostle Paul Eph 3:1-9, Rom 16:25. This differs form the Kingdom of Heaven message. Compare Lk 1:70, Acts 3:21 with Rom 16:25, 1 Cor 2.7.
  • Magnocrat
    Devout men of every nation : does that mean they were religious men
  • Irene123
    What I think of Acts 2 is -- it is THE beginning of Jesus' church and HIS salvation is found in verse 38.
  • Irene123
    I know He calls us and He receives us - after we have followed Acts 2:38. There is no, with just our mouths, 'accepting' Him as our personal savior. not when Peter himself, with the keys of knowledge Jesus gave him, was inspired by the Holy Ghost to preach Acts 2:38. How could anyone think that Jesus is such a 'marshmallow after the pre-scourging, then hours of crucifixion he went thru?
