TITLE: “chURch - devoted”

TEXT:  Acts 2  (especially vss. 42-47)

IN A NUTSHELL:  It's the second major Jewish feast of the year.  It comes at the close of the grain harvest and God has called every Jew to come to Jerusalem for a time of worship and gratitude to God for the harvest.  All of a sudden 120 disciples praying becomes 12 apostles preaching and then 3,000 souls coming into the chURch.  What now? In verses 42-47 we see the four practices/priorities/privileges that united a very diverse chURch, and set the stage for an unprecedented spiritual harvest!

A few questions to consider:

  1. How many different nations were represented in the crowd on Pentecost?
  2. If you remove the word "tongues" and put in it's place languages how would you view the story of Acts 2 differently?
  3. What seemed to be the main points of Peter's sermon?
  4. What are four reoccurring priorities the new chURch started/grew with?
  5. To what RU devoted?
