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.

    To David C. on Acts ch. 2 - Have you read, in the Bible, what IT has to say about - 'scholars .....?
  • Bro. Daniel FC
    Most scholars accept the idea that the book of Acts was written by Luke, who was not one of the 12 disciples. And probably what he writes is “second hand” information, and not necessarily complete.
  • Bro. Daniel FC
    I don t think the disciples have willingly disobeyed their Master, but perhaps the records are incomplete. Either way we need to go with the commandment of our Savior. This is why, today, Christians baptize the new believers in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. If you have a problem with what Jesus says, you have a big problem
  • Bookreadingismything
    Oh Lord Jesus, I do repent. I am so sorry for all the mistakes I made in the past for things I said and done that hurt and alienated people, because I was afraid of getting hurt over and over again. I am so sorry, and I try to be a better person every day. I want only to help others and serve you, Jesus.
  • Wayne
    VV.38 and 41: repent and be saved, baptized, and they received the Holy Ghost. No speaking in other languages needed that day. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Speaking another language is a sign to unbelievers, not believers.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    From the book of Acts to the book of Jude, its all there. Speaking in Tongues is an absolute must for you to manafest because Gods Holy Word says so. The Word of God IS the WILL of God, Amen and Amen indeed. Shalom yedda dim {beloved one}.
