The coming of the Holy Spirit begins to quickly reshape the world for Jesus’ followers. Before Acts 2, their reality centers on Jesus, resurrected and physically present with them. What Roman guard or Jewish leader dares approach Jesus’ band of disciples with the evidence of resurrection sitting in their midst? They seem to steer clear of any association lest the rumors we hear about in Matthew prove disputable. But now a new rumor begins to circulate: Jesus is gone; he’s no longer with them. Without Jesus, persecution and a change in geography quickly reshape the lives of the disciples. It’s now Peter’s turn, along with the other disciples and followers and in the power of the Holy Spirit, to bear the image of God.
