Knowing Christ

Second Sunday in Easter, Old Testament Lesson Plan, Year A
Scripture: Acts 2:14a, 22-32

Note: for the Easter Season, readings from the Acts of the Apostles take the place of Old Testament Readings. 

The apostles had been hiding out in the upper room where the last supper with Jesus had occurred. Since the crucifixion they were fearful that the Romans might also arrest and kill them for being followers of Jesus. Jesus had told them to remain in the city of Jerusalem until they received the power of His Holy Spirit. Fifty days after Easter was the day of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit entered the room and filled each apostle with power and boldness. In this passage Peter has gone out into the streets of Jerusalem to preach the message of the Resurrect ion. Peter compares Jesus to David, but states that David was only a prophet. Jesus, being God could not be contained by death. Peter testifies that he and all the apostles are witnesses to this.
