The First Gospel Sermon on the Day of Pentecost - Acts 2

This is what happened:
Right before Jesus went back to heaven, Jesus had told the apostles to wait in Jerusalem for the Holy Spirit.
So as they sat waiting with Mary, the mother of Jesus and Jesus' brothers and about 120 other disciples, the Holy Spirit swooped down upon them in the form of 'tongues of fire'

Now I don't know what that is exactly, but it is fun to imagine!



The apostles began to draw a crowd because everyone in the crowd could hear someone talking about the

Now that was great!    -----    that they could hear about the

 but what was really odd was that they could hear someone talking about Jesus in their very own language (which you wouldn't expect of Galileans) and there were a lot of different languages to be spoken on that day!

So the people were amazed at this!   
Some people ridiculed the apostles and said that they were drunk!

But the apostles weren't drunk; besides, it was only 9 o'clock in the morning.














So Peter stood up and told the people that the apostles were not drunk - they were filled with the Holy Spirit like had been promised back in the book of Joel.

God promised to pour out His Spirit upon everyone that would be his servant.

And like any good preacher, Peter pointed out the people's sin.  He told them that they had crucified the Christ; the Jesus that God resurrected from the dead and has made Lord of all things.

It was God's plan that Jesus die for the sins of the world; but it was by their wickedness that Jesus was delivered up to be crucified.

Peter begged them to repent of their sins and be baptized.  Three-thousand people did so that day.

Sometimes people ridicule others just because they don't understand what they are doing. 

Instead of reaching for understanding, people of ignorance reach for ridicule.
