LESSON BACKGROUND. After Jesus had been crucified, buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven (see Acts 1:1-11), His disciples soon gathered in the upper room where they voted to replace Judas Iscariot with Matthias as the twelfth apostle (see Acts 1:15-26). Sometime later, probably within a few weeks many Jews returned to Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Pentecost. At that time, Jesus’ followers received the Holy Spirit and led by Peter they witnessed to many of the Jews returning to Jerusalem for the celebration (see Acts 2:1-47). Probably within days of this, as was their custom, Peter and John went to the temple to pray. This is where our lesson begins.
