NIV Observations:

2:11 – Apostles declared the wonders of God

2:12 – some were amazed and perplexed (and curious)

2:13 – some made fun of them (how does this even make sense? Too much wine wouldn’t help a Galilean speak a foreign language.  In fact, too much wine can mess up your ability to speak!)

2:16-21 – Joel 2:28-32

2:25-28 – Psalm 16:8-11 (Septuagint)

2:34-35 – Psalm 110:1

2:41 – how long to baptize 3000 people?

2:42 – devoted themselves to Apostles’ teaching, fellowship, breaking bread, prayer – so they stayed in Jerusalem?  Didn’t return home?
