Spiritual Discussion on Acts and Pentecost Time 0:00

Upper Room Gathering and Pentecost Experience Time 1:57


Jared discussed the gathering of the disciples in an upper room, which included Peter, James, John, and Andrew; Philip and Thomas; Bartholomew and Matthew; James, the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot; and Judas, the son of James. The group numbered about 120, prayed together, and Peter spoke about the Scripture's fulfillment concerning Judas, who had betrayed Jesus and met a tragic end. The group also elected Mathias to fill Judas' vacant position, and he was included among the 11 apostles. Jared also mentioned the day of Pentecost when the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit, enabling them to speak in different tongues, which amazed the crowd.


Old Testament, New Testament Interpretation Time 5:57


Jared discussed the interpretation of the Old Testament and the New Testament. He emphasized that the Old Testament references Christ and his works, referencing Luke, chapter 24, verse 27. Jared also explained the fate of Judas using Matthew's and Luke's accounts. He highlighted that despite the differences in the accounts, Luke's report provides a more detailed description of Judas's end, which should be understood spiritually.


Biblical Verses and Greek Word Discussion Time 8:59


Jared discussed various biblical verses, focusing on the Book of Psalms and the Acts of the Apostles. He highlighted the Greek word for 'office,' which refers to the apostolic position of overseer and the practice of casting lots in ancient times. Jared also discussed the use of 'lots' in various situations, emphasizing that it was not surrendering all authority to random chance. He mentioned the Feast of Weeks, also known as Pentecost, and how it is a celebration of the first fruits of the harvest and marks 50 days after the crucifixion of Jesus.


Biblical Prophecy and Tower of Babel Discussion Time 13:58


Jared led a discussion about the biblical prophecy of Joel and its fulfillment. He referenced the occurrence where a sound confused the multitude in Jerusalem because they heard people speaking in their languages, pointing out that this is the divine reversal of the population advance at the Tower of Babel. The Tower of Babel story from Genesis 11 was also discussed, where the Lord confused the language of humanity to prevent them from building a city and a tower that reached heaven. The study was found to be quite interesting.


Trinity and Unity in Christianity Time 17:10
