Come and See

Lesson 2 of our new topic will enable you to understand that the gift of the holy spirit is for everyone.

Read Peter’s message explaining to the people in Jerusalem that the gift of the Holy Spirit is for everyone.

“God has raised this very Jesus from death and we are all witnesses to this fact.  He has been raised to the right hand side of God, his Father, and has received from him the Holy Spirit, as he had promised.  What you now see and hear is his gift that he has poured out on us.  All the people of Israel, then, are to know for sure that this Jesus, whom you crucified, is the one that God has made Lord and Messiah!”

When the people heard this, they were deeply troubled and said to Peter and the other apostles, “What shall we do, brothers?”  Peter said to them, “Each one of you must turn away from your sins and be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins will be forgiven; and you will receive God’s gift, the Holy Spirit.  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 ”.

Many of them believed his message and were baptised, and about three thousand people were added to the group that day.  They spent their time in learning from the apostles, taking part in the fellowship, and sharing in the fellowship meals and the prayers.

Based on Acts 2: 32-39, 41-42


  • What changes can you find in people’s feelings, actions and words?
  • How did the crowd react?
  • How did the onlookers respond?
  • What did Peter tell the people of Israel to do?
  • How did the people respond to Peter’s message?
  • How did it shape their lives?


Imagine you were in Jerusalem at the time, heard Peters message and have just been baptised.  Write a letter to a friend who has not heard about Jesus, giving reasons to show how belief in the transforming power of the Holy Spirit has empowered you and changed your life.



  1. Hello Miss Andrew
    Our printer in broken so we are struggling a little with the PDF’s is it possible to have some of your resources in word so we can download then and fill them in on our laptop?

  2. Here is my chapter three of the explorer hope you like it

    As he awoke from his sleep he noticed something that looked like a plaited ladder leading somewhere.

    “What is that?” he whispered to himself.

    He didn’t dare to wake any of his siblings up because they would kill him. As he stood up the vines had tangled in his ripped boots so he tugged them off and stood up.

    He brushed the leaves out of his hair and looked at the ladder like vine. As he went closer he tripped and feel on the leaf covered ground he turned around and he saw her staring with rage.

    “What are you doing?” she whispered harshly trying not to wake Max up.
    “I’m going to go and find out what this is” he said back
    “No you’re not” she said lying down and going back to sleep. Yes I am he thought.

    He went to the tree and examined it for a few minutes. It looked like there were arrow marks there. He started to climb it. As he did he realised that it was slightly unsteady but that didn’t stop him from trying just as he got to the top of the ladder it broke.

    He called out to his sister to ask for help, finally she woke up and woke up Max as well.

    Both of them climb up and have look around. The roof was made out of leaves entwined with bark. The leaves on the ground were in the shape of a sleeping bag. There was a wooden bucket of flint shaped like arrow heads in the corner surrounded by moss leaves witch looked like it had fallen from the roof.

    They started to clear the floor and as they were doing that Max found a book and was about to throw it out of the window but his sister grabbed it and showed it to him this looks like a journal. They started to read it and once they got to the end of the book it told them about something strange, cannibals.

    “Don’t worry it’s probably a local myth” she said.

    Suddenly they heard a rustling sound. At first they thought it was the wind in the vines, but then the wind stopped and the rustling continued. They all huddled up in the corner and waited.

    • Hi Charlotte, what a wonderful piece of writing! I love the vocabulary you’ve used such as entwined and rustling and that you’ve included paragraphs, complex sentences and speech. Have a read over it, can you see where a few commas are needed? I wonder what is going to happen next….
      Miss Andrew 🙂
