MORE FALSE DOCTRINE
June 26, 2014
The preface was enough to give it away. The author was right about one thing, though: what happened to the 120 on Pentecost DID happen to themâ€”for NOTHING happened to the 120 on the day of Pentecost! The Holy Spirit came upon the 12, NOT the 120. The antecedent of "they" in Acts 2:1 is "the eleven" ["they"â€”"the eleven"; "all"â€”all 12 (i.e., w/ Matthias)] (i.e., the APOSTLES) right there in the preceding verse. If you want "they...all" to mean the 120, you have to go all the way back up to the parenthetical, "by-the-way" mention of them in 1:15! That is not only irresponsible exegesis (to put it lightly), but it is also incorrect grammar.
If you can't even read the preface or introduction of commentary without seeing such typical manipulation of the sacred text, you do yourself nothing but harm by reading any farther.
"...there are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach unto you any gospel other than that which we preached unto you, let him be anathema" (Gal. 1:6,7).
