BibleGateway.com - Passage Lookup: Acts 2 - 4 views

  • 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.
  •  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.

  • 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!"

      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.
  • 5Now
    • dldeskins
       
      The Jews in Jerusalem were not there to party. They were devout people (men?)
  • 6When they heard this sound
    • dldeskins
       
      Again, this was a loud sound... a comotion. The Holy Spirit had made His presence known.
  • Then Peter stood up with the Eleven
    • dldeskins
       
      Peter had once rejected Jesus, but he was now leading the way.

  • 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.

  • I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach 2until the day he was taken up to heaven
    • dldeskins
       
      The Book of Luke was devoted to all of what Jesus did and taught.
  • 1In my former book, Theophilus
    • dldeskins
       
      The former book was the Book of Luke... This was the second book by Luke to Theophilus.
  •  
    This was Luke's second book to Theophilus

    OK... I am starting this and hope to be able to share stuff with other people. I am no great theologian or scholar, but I do know what the Lord Jesus has done for me.
  • dldeskins
     
    I added a few more notes to Chap 2 of Acts (NIV). I am still trying to learn which way would be better... Highlight the word ( has to be at least 3 characters?) or the whole sentence.

    Highlighting and adding a sticky note to a page can be used for commentary (not for arguing) and cross referencing. While cross referencing in some Bibles are good, we might need to add some other notes as to why there is a cross ref. Also, add the hyperlink (rich text).
