THE BOOK OF ACTS - LESSON #2

Acts 1:8-26

“The _promise of the Holy Spirit”

Vs. 8 The word _power__ is “dunamis” (Greek). The word “dunamis” implies two meanings.

(1. We get the word dynamite

(2. We get the word dynamo which refers to a generator.

“is come _upon___ you” indicates that this has __happened

before but not in this _measure.

This is direct fulfillment of Joel 2:28 & 29.

“And it shall come to pass_afterward__ that I will pour_

________ my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters

shall prophecy_____, your old men shall dream dreams and your young men shall see _visions____; And also upon the __servants__ and the _handmaids_ in those days I will pour out My Spirit.”

The Old Testament saints could only look _forward_ to a day when all of God’s people would _receive_empowerment to do God’s work.

We are to be witnesses in...

* Jerusalem - _city

* Judea - _state__

* Samaria - __nation

*uttermost - all the _world_____________

Vs. 9 - “_taken up ” This are the same words found in vs. 2. They refer to the Ascension.

Vs. 10 - Here is proof that _Angels__ can appear and disappear.

One hundred and twenty men were present plus women.

the Apostles, and may even have performed miracles or saw

miracles performed.
