Peter Drops the Mic

Acts 2:14-36 ~ Peter Drops the Mic

This week we finished studying Peter’s first sermon in Acts 2 (stopping short of the crowd’s response). We completed the verse-by-verse through vs. 36 and then zoomed back out to review the sermon as a whole. We examined an inclusio Luke used to enclose Peter’s sermon, and verse 36 = a “mic-dropping moment.” 🎤  We also discussed how a clear understanding of this passage lends itself to sharing the gospel message with those who feel that God could never forgive them for what they’ve done. ❤️️❤️️
