Acts 18:8

Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord
with all his household. And many of the Corinthians,
hearing, believed and were baptized.

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

In Romans 10:9-13, we learn that, "if you confess with
your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that
God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For
with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with
the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the
Scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him will not be put
to shame." For there is no distinction between Jew and
Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call
upon Him. For "whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall
be saved." This is very clear and straightforward!

God Bless You!

Q. Last week, we saw that Peter, in Acts 2:38-39, said,
"Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name
of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall
receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." Later, in Acts 2:41,
we learn that some believers received his (Peter's) word
were baptized. That day how many souls were added to the
body of believers?

Answer below.



Christians ought to rise together in defense of spiritual
and moral values against the pressure of materialism and
moral permissiveness.
John Paul II



A Missouri farmer passed away and left 17 mules to his three
sons. The instructions left in the will said that the oldest
boy was to get one-half, the second oldest one-third, and
the youngest one-ninth. The three sons, recognizing the
difficulty of dividing 17 mules into these fractions, began
to argue.

Their uncle heard about the argument, hitched up his mule
and drove out to settle the matter. He added his mule to
the 17, making 18. The oldest therefore got one-half, or
nine, the second oldest got one-third, or six, and the
youngest son got one-ninth, or two. Adding up 9, 6 and 2
equals 17. The uncle, having settled the argument, hitched
up his mule and drove home.



Q. How many souls were added to the body of believers in
Acts 2:41?

A. About three thousand souls.

Those who gladly received his (Peter's) word were baptized;
and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.

Acts 2:41
