As Many as He Calls

After completing his sermon on Pentecost, Peter summoned his audience to repent and be baptized “ in the name of Jesus Christ ,” though something more than just a call to accept the Gospel was transpiring. He concluded his words on a note of fulfillment and with a foretaste of things to come. He began with a citation from the  Book of Joel , and he finished with a clause from the same passage, thus neatly bracketing his message.
