Blossom

So it was with the church. Acts 2.41 explained, "Many of them believed his message and were baptized, and about three thousand people were added to the group that day." Acts 2.39 added, "For God's promise was made to you and your children, and to all who are far away, all whom the Lord our God calls to himself."

Biblical Evangelism

The Bible AnswerIn Southwestern Ontario, the spring corn in the fields is renowned for its rapid growth. In the words of the musical "Oklahoma!," "the corn is as high as an elephant's eye." Initially, spring corn shows as a pale green carpet, but it soon springs up to over five feet high in a few short weeks! Ideally, Biblical evangelism produces similar verdant growth and blossoming.✞

James King Version

The Apostle Peter quoted an Old Testament prophet in Acts 2.16, "This is what the prophet Joel spoke about." Later Peter added what David had said about the Lord in Acts 2.25, "I saw the Lord before me at all times, he is near me, and I will not be troubled." One minister, The Rev. James King, often paraphrased a Biblical passage in his preaching instead of quoting the King James version of the Bible. Then he would smile and say, "That's the James King version."
