biblestudy: Acts (Part Four)
Acts 2:22-47 Christ's Messiahship / Giving of Holy Spirit
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 16-Aug-88; Sermon #BS-AC04; 64 minutes
The apostle Peter, using the details of fulfilled prophecy (couched in David's psalms), convicts the crowd of their culpability in the death of Jesus Christ. Peter clearly establishes the Messiahship of Jesus, showing His connection to David's prophetic psalms (such as Psalm 16) and David's lineage. The formula for receiving God's Holy Spirit—repentance and baptism is explored—and compared to current practice. The early church experienced a high level of cohesiveness by continuing in doctrine, fellowship, sharing meals, and praying together.
