Peter's Pentecost Sermon
On the day of Pentecost, Peter opens the doors to the Kingdom for the first time. This sermon sets the theme for the rest of the book of Acts. In fact, it sets the background for the whole of the New Testament.
Unfortunately, that background is seen by many as a personal call to salvation, forgiveness, and the reception of the Holy Spirit. While these are certainly in this sermon, they are not Peter's focus. Rather, his focus is to make clear that "God has made him both Lord and Messiah" (Acts 2:36).
