III. The Propagation

A. In the Jewish Land through the Ministry of Peter's Company

1. The Jewish Believers' Baptism in the Holy Spirit

a. The Economical Filling of the Holy Spirit

1 And as the day of 1aPentecost was being fulfilled, they were all together in the same place.

2 And suddenly there was a sound out of heaven, as of a rushing violent 1awind, and it 2bfilled the whole house where they were sitting.

3 And there appeared to them 1tongues as of 2fire, which were distributed; and it 3sat on each one of them;

4 And they were 1all 2filled with the Holy Spirit and began to aspeak in different 3btongues, even as the cSpirit gave to them to 4speak forth.

b. The Peoples' Amazement

5 Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem 1Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven.

6 And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together and was confounded because each one heard them aspeaking in his own dialect.

7 And they were aamazed and marveled, saying, Behold, are not all these who are speaking bGalileans?

8 And how is it that we each hear them in our own dialect in which we were born?

9 Parthians and aMedes and bElamites and those dwelling in cMesopotamia, both in Judea and dCappadocia, in ePontus and fAsia,

10 Both in aPhrygia and bPamphylia, in cEgypt and the parts of dLibya around eCyrene, and the sojourning of Rome, both Jews and 1proselytes,

11 aCretans and bArabians, we hear them speaking in our 1tongues the magnificent works of God?

12 And they were all aamazed and perplexed, saying to one another, What does this mean?

13 But others ajeered and said, They are full of 1new wine!
