    We, as Christians are constantly seeking God's wisdom, but sometimes we find it's not such an easy task. Even with all our reference and study materials, we still seem to get confused.

  • Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.
    • dldeskins
       
      Some commentators have said that this wind of the Holy Spirti was not just the gentle breeze. The Holy Spirit was making himself known. It was the sound of "a train going by"... that is, not quiet.
    • Robert Fohr
       
      ἦχος ēchos ay'-khos Of uncertain affinity; a loud or confused noise ("echo"), that is, roar; figuratively a rumor: - fame, sound.
  •  1When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.
    • dldeskins
       
      The "day of Pentecost" was on a Sunday. That is, 50 days after Passover (a Sabbath).
  • tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them
    • dldeskins
       
      Tongues was not limited here, as the "gift of tongues" would be (see 1Co 12). Here everyone that believed received the Holy Spirit, and as a sign, spoke in other tongues. Paul talks about speaking in the "tongues of men and of angels" but clearly here, those that spoke in tongues ware clearly a sign to, and understood by, the non-believing Jews that were present.
  • ...13 more annotations...
  • 8Then how is it that each of us hears them in his own native language? 9Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 1 >0Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs-we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!"
    • dldeskins
       
      All the known world
  • 7Utterly amazed, they asked: "Are not all these men who are speaking Galileans?
    • dldeskins
       
      Galileans - The meaning here is that these were not "educated" people like the Romans or Greeks.
  • 13Some, however, made fun of them and said, "They have had too much wine.[b]"
    • dldeskins
       
      Not sure about this. Why would the non-believing crowd think that they were drunk? Yes, they were probably in the middle of a feast and wine was available, but it was only 9am. What about their actions made the non-believing crowd think that they were drunk.
    • anonymous
       
      It may have been because they heard so many languages all at once and each only understood his own native toungue. So the sound in general may have been like babeling (although the foreigners clearly understood the message in their own language).
  • 5Now
    • dldeskins
       
      The Jews in Jerusalem were not there to party. They were devout people (men?)
    • anonymous
       
      It seems from verse 2 that this event was not at the temple but at a house so there may well have been women and children in the crowd as well as men. Most likly- in that culture and the crowd being "devout" - the women & children would be quiet and respectful in public.
  • 6When they heard this sound
    • dldeskins
       
      Again, this was a loud sound... a comotion. The Holy Spirit had made His presence known.
    • anonymous
       
      As throughout the accounts given to us in scripture - here again, the Lord honored and confirmed His Word using these supernatural events at the initialization of His church -the body of Christ!
  • Then Peter stood up with the Eleven
    • dldeskins
       
      Peter had once rejected Jesus, but he was now leading the way.
  • seemed
    • Robert Fohr
       
      KJV reads.... appeared.
    • Robert Fohr
       
      In the greek we have the word....ὀπτάνομαι, ὄπτομαι optanomai optomai op-tan'-om-ahee, op'-tom-ahee....which means.... The first a (middle voice) prolonged form of the second (primary) which is used for it in certain tenses; and both as alternates of G3708; to gaze (that is, with wide open eyes, as at something remarkable; and thus differing from G991, which denotes simply voluntary observation; and from G1492, which expresses merely mechanical, passive or casual vision; while G2300, and still more emphatically its intensive G2334, signifies an earnest but more continued inspection; and G4648 a watching from a distance): - appear, look, see, shew self.
  • to be
    • Robert Fohr
       
      In the King James version this reads...unto them,...the greek word - αὐτός autos ow-tos'...is used here, meaning.... From the particle αὖ au (perhaps akin to the base of G109 through the idea of a baffling wind; backward); the reflexive pronoun self, used (alone or in the compound of G1438) of the third person, and (with the proper personal pronoun) of the other persons: - her, it (-self), one, the other, (mine) own, said, ([self-], the) same, ([him-, my-, thy-]) self, [your-] selves, she, that, their (-s), them ([-selves]), there [-at, -by, -in, -into, -of, -on, -with], they, (these) things, this (man), those, together, very, which.
  • tongues
    • Robert Fohr
       
      Greek New Testament reads...γλῶσσα glōssa gloce'-sah Of uncertain affinity; the tongue; by implication a language (specifically one naturally unacquired): - tongue.
  • They saw what seemed to be
    • Robert Fohr
       
      KJV....And there appeared unto them.... In the greek the word... ὀπτάνομαι, ὄπτομαι optanomai optomai op-tan'-om-ahee, op'-tom-ahee is used....meaning.... The first a (middle voice) prolonged form of the second (primary) which is used for it in certain tenses; and both as alternates of G3708; to gaze (that is, with wide open eyes, as at something remarkable; and thus differing from G991, which denotes simply voluntary observation; and from G1492, which expresses merely mechanical, passive or casual vision; while G2300, and still more emphatically its intensive G2334, signifies an earnest but more continued inspection; and G4648 a watching from a distance): - appear, look, see, shew self.
  • Suddenly
    • Robert Fohr
       
      Greek New Testament (GNT) aphnō af'-no Adverb from G852 (contracted); unawares, that is, unexpectedly: - suddenly.
  • a sound
    • Robert Fohr
       
      (GNT) The word.... ἦχος ēchos ay'-khos Of uncertain affinity; a loud or confused noise ("echo"), that is, roar; figuratively a rumor: - fame, sound.
  • filled
    • Robert Fohr
       
      Geek... πληρόω plēroō play-ro'-o From G4134; to make replete, that is, (literally) to cram (a net), level up (a hollow), or (figuratively) to furnish (or imbue, diffuse, influence), satisfy, execute (an office), finish (a period or task), verify (or coincide with a prediction), etc.: - accomplish, X after, (be) complete, end, expire, fill (up), fulfil, (be, make) full (come), fully preach, perfect, supply.

  • 26Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles.
    • dldeskins
       
      The last time that it is recorded in the Bible that anyone "cast lots." Used to determine the will of God. Of course we now have the Holy Spirit to guide us.
