Dr. Richard Thompson, a scholar of Luke-Acts, joins the Podcast to help you understand what is happening behind the story of Pentecost, recorded in Acts 2. What is the Feast of Pentecost? Why were people in Jerusalem? Why did Peter think of the Book of Joel as a sermon text? Who thinks of Joel for a sermon text?
You may be familiar with the coming of the Spirit upon the people of God, but time and distance may rob you of some of the underlying facts that are not stated in Acts. This podcast tries to bring context, culture, history of Jewish religion, and some assumptions to the surface to help you engage closer to the miraculous work that God did on the Day of Pentecost.
