June 9 Pentecost

Where does this strange moment fit within the story of redemption? How does it tie the old and new testaments together? How should we understand it? We must begin with the audience in attendance on that day. 

This Jesus, Peter testifies, was exalted in his ascension to the right hand of God the Father—the symbolic place of absolute power and authority—and he sent the promised Holy Spirit, whose work the Jewish audience has now seen and heard with their own eyes and ears.  Peter used the Scriptures they’ve believed to interpret the phenomena they’ve seen. Jesus has indeed risen from the dead and has poured out his Spirit to fill God’s new-covenant people, according to the Scriptures: Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified. Acts 2:36

Pentecost is a redemptive-historical confirmation that Christ is risen and reigning.
