The Coming of the Spirit (2:1-13)
The story of the origin of a nation, a movement or an institution captures the imagination of later generations. Whether in the yearly remembrance of America's founding, the Fourth of July, or the twentieth anniversary of a key event in a movement, the civil rights march from Montgomery to Selma, Alabama, or the celebration of the New Testament church's birthday, Pentecost, each generation desires to recall in vivid detail what happened in those early days. A people reinvigorates itself by drawing comfort and challenge from the way it was in the beginning.
