Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II
Series: The Acts: The Unstoppable Work of the Risen Christ
Synopsis: Peter's address to the Jewish crowd filled with scoffers and those curious about the miracle at Pentecost is a model for us to follow in our own proclamation of the gospel. In part two of this "Message at Pentecost," special attention is given to the character of Peter's message: it was Scriptural. His reliance upon God's Word instead of his own is a pattern for us to adopt. Furthermore, Peter explains it was the reality of Christ's resurrection, verified by present-day witnesses and predicted in the Old Testament by credible sources, that served as the catalyst for the proclamation of the gospel to the visitors in Jerusalem in the unique manner in which it was done. The reality of the resurrection ought to prompt us to use God's Word to boldly proclaim the same gospel the early disciples did.
