Queerying Easter 3A
Rev. Emily E. Ewing queeries the Acts reading.
Acts 2:14a, 36-41
14But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd,
36“Therefore let the entire house of Israel know with certainty that God has made Them both Leader and Anointed, this Jesus whom you crucified.”
37Now when the crowd heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and to the other apostles, “Kindred, what should we do?”
38Peter said to them, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39For the promise is for you, for your children, and for all who are far away, everyone whom the Becoming One our God calls to Them.” 40And Peter testified with many other arguments and exhorted them, saying, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” 41So those who welcomed his message were baptized, and that day about three thousand persons were added.
