- Acts 2:1-21
On the Day of Pentecost, devout Jews have come to Jerusalem from every nation. Suddenly there came from the sky a sound like the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. Tongues like fire appeared and were distributed to them, and one sat on each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other languages, as the Spirit gave them the ability to speak. Peter preaches a powerful sermon (which continues through 2:36).
- Acts 2:14a, 22-32
"Men of Israel, hear these words! Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved by God to you by mighty works and wonders and signs, even as you yourselves know, him, being delivered up by the determined counsel and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by the hand of lawless men, crucified and killed; whom God raised up, having freed him from the agony of death, because it was not possible that he should be held by it."
- Acts 2:14a, 36-41
"Let all the house of Israel therefore know certainly that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified." Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Brothers, what shall we do?" Peter said to them, "Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Then those who gladly received his word were baptized. There were added that day about three thousand souls.
- Acts 2:42-47
The disciples devoted themselves to the apostles' teach, fellowship, the breaking of bread, and the prayers. They had all possessions in common. The Lord daily added to their number those who were being saved.
