Acts 2

Who Is This Lord? Acts 2:14-42


  1. The first Gospel sermon was preached in Acts 2.
  2. Through God’s providence, a Rosetta stone for the Gospel had been made on the day of Pentecost.
  3. Peter’s sermon selects Joel 2:28-32 as his text. It answers the question of what just happened (baptism of the Holy Spirit) and sets up to preach Jesus.


  1. It Is What Joel Spoke Of (Acts 2:14-21):
    1. Refutes the scoffers saying the Apostles are drunk. vv.14-15
    2. Joel’s prophecy is being fulfilled. vv.16-21
    3. “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” v.21
    4. Who is this Lord that we should call on His name?
  2. Jesus Is Joel’s Lord (Acts 2:22-28):
    1. Joel’s Lord is Jesus the Christ. v.22
    2. Three pieces of evidence to support this claim. v.22-24
      1. Jesus performed attesting miracles. v.22 cf. Exo. 4:5
      2. He was the subject of biblical prophecy. v.23
      3. He was raised from the dead never to die v.24 cf. Rom. 1:4
    3. King David also testifies About Jesus. vv.25-28
  3. You Killed Him (Acts 2:29-36):
    1. Peter applies/shows how David spoke of Jesus vv.29-35
    2. Major point of the sermon: You killed Him! v.36
    3. What do we do now?
  4. The Response to the Gospel (Acts 2:37-41):
    1. The question. v.37
    2. The solution vv.38-40
    3. The Response. vv.41-42


  1. Jesus told the Apostles to go and preach the gospel to all creation (Matt. 28:18ff).
  2. In Acts 2 we see the apostles do just that.
  3. You can be saved this morning just as they were. By being baptized unto the remission of your sins (Acts 2:38).
