LET’S TALK: JAY KLOPFENSTEIN: MAR 22, 2020
Read Acts 2:22-36
Discuss these 4 points:
- Jesus Lived (v. 22)
- Jesus Crucified (v. 23)
- Jesus Resurrected (v. 24-32)
- Jesus Ascended ( v. 33-36)
Peter’s sermon is simple and straightforward. It is a Christ-saturated, no frills proclamation. He unambiguously preaches Jesus without pretension!
Too often we can feel the need to help God with His message. It seems, however, that the messages having the greatest impact are the ones least adorned with human accessories.
The Expositor’s Bible Commentary says this, “With the proclamation of Jesus as Lord and Messiah, Peter reaches the climax and conclusion of his sermon. The initial “therefore” shows that God’s resurrection and exaltation of Jesus accredits him as mankind’s Lord and Israel’s Messiah. And Peter calls upon “all Israel” (lit., “all the house [oikos] of Israel”) to know with certainty that “God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”
1. Write your own summary of Peter’s sermon.
2. What are proofs that Peter used to show that Jesus is the Christ?
3. In your own words explain Peter’s argument in vv 29-31. How did he connect the prophecy in vv 25-28 to his conclusion in v32?
4. Pray that God will give you the courage to share this simple message with someone who does not know Jesus!
