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.

    Remember the question that was asked of Peter. What must we do? Peter told the people what they must do:acts2:38 and who else should dothis:acts2:39

    Acts 7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, Before Stephen got stone, Jesus was standing to come down from Heaven, but when Stephen died, Jesus sat back down. There was a reason for Jesus for standing. The Mystery
  • A disciple
    Forgive me, Ray; but you are mistaken with what you say about Stephen's death preventing the coming of the Lord! That is something simply out of your own head; nothing that can be qualified by Scripture or the Spirit of the LORD in all Prophecies. The Day of the LORD comes when the transgressors are come to the full and all restraint has been taken away from them to do all that they have imagined.
  • Ray321
    Acts 2:16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel The Apostles thought they were on the last days. Joel 1:15 15 Alas for the day! for the day of the Lord is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come. The Apostle knew the day of the Lord was near. They were living it , but something stops all that, in chapter 7, the stoning of Stephen. Jews rejected Christ.

    Verse 11 shows the power of hearing the good news of God in one's own language.
  • A disciple
    "..Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven..every man heard them speak in his own language." It may seem like an insignificant point that there were Jews from every Nation under heaven; but there is much in it. Because of Israel's sin and rebellion, rejection of the faith and God's Spirit in His Prophets; they were put under the dominion of the Gentiles until the Day of the LORD.
