The New City
You can’t really look at the whole gamut of Jesus’ life unless you also look at Pentecost. What is Pentecost about?
Back in Exodus 18-20, you have a mountain (Sinai), a ministry (the law of Moses), and a new people (Israel). That’s what the first Pentecost was. But that’s also what you have here in Acts. The sun rose that day. But by the time the sun went down, Pentecost meant something completely different. It meant something greater. It meant something infinitely beyond it.
What Pentecost means is there’s a new mountain, there’s a new ministry, and there’s a whole new people whom God has brought into being.
This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on June 1, 1997. Series “The Real Jesus Part 4; The Lord”. Scripture: Acts 2:1-12.
