Details, Please (Part 2)
Ten days after Jesus’ ascension into heaven, God sends the Holy Spirit on the festival day of Pentecost – and the church is born. Through the Spirit, the disciples are empowered to preach boldly about Jesus, and three thousand people become Christians that day. Jewish leaders, fearing the new movement called “this way” (9:2), begin persecuting believers, who scatter to other areas and spread the Gospel through much of the known world.
