You may have wondered: When did the disciples become born again? What was their experience like? We will learn about their conversion at Pentecost, how Nicodemus reacted to Jesus’ teachings, and how their faith and conversions fuelled the early church. These are important questions to ask yourself. After reading this article, you’ll have a better understanding of what happened. If you’ve never read the Gospels before, you’ll be surprised!
In the Bible, the day of Pentecost is known as the Feast of the Holy Spirit. The Jews celebrate this day about 50 days after Passover. The first five books of the New Testament mention this holiday five times. The apostles were baptized and received the Holy Spirit at this feast. The disciples were told to remain in Jerusalem until they received power from on high, and this power came to them on Pentecost.
When did the disciples become born again? Pentecost is one of the most important feast days in the Christian calendar. According to Acts 2:1-4, the Holy Spirit descends upon the Jews and Gentiles. The disciples gathered in the upper room to pray, and after Christ ascended, they received the Holy Spirit. It was at this point that the disciples began to see and hear visions.
Saul’s conversion has profound implications for the history of the church. The Bible gives three separate accounts of Saul’s conversion. He played a key role in the death of Stephen and later became his successor. Saul was a Hellenistic Jew and had a ministry that focused on Hellenistic Jews. His conversion is important for a number of reasons, including the fact that his enemies tried to kill him.
Many Christians are familiar with the story of the conversion of Saul, which takes place on the road to Damascus. The apostle was blinded by a dazzling light, but he responded to the call of Christ. He followed him, was baptized, and began spreading the gospel. Throughout his life, Saul told others about his conversion and proclaimed Jesus as Lord. His conversion story was repeated to various kings and magistrates throughout his life.
Nicodemus’ reaction to Jesus’ teachings
We can see that the Jewish scholar, Nicodemus, had not fully understood the teachings of Jesus. He had false expectations of the Messiah and had not been seeking a suffering servant. He also had not sought out God’s grace and mercy in Jesus’ teachings. Nicodemus believed that the best way to know God was to memorize the scriptures backwards. He had grown up in a religious environment that encouraged him to study the teachings of John the Baptist and the law of Moses.
He had not yet understood that one must be born again to enter the kingdom of God. As a Pharisee, Nicodemus had been raised from a child, but he could not enter the kingdom of God until he was reborn. So, Jesus explained the way that one must be born again. But to be born again, a person must be born from above. If Nicodemus had not been born from above, he would never see the kingdom of God.
Saul’s conversion fueled early church expansion
The Book of Acts records the conversion of Saul of Tarsus three times, the first in the third person. The three-fold repetition is a clue that Saul’s conversion was important, and Luke was trying to establish themes throughout the book. It’s not difficult to imagine that Saul’s conversion fueled the early church expansion. As a former persecutor of Christians, Saul’s conversion was an important moment for the early church expansion.
The conversion of Saul was a controversial event among the Jews, but the subsequent actions of other Christians may have facilitated his task. While there is no evidence that Christians were listed in Saul’s conversion, many scholars believe this conversion fueled the early church’s expansion. In addition, the conversion of Saul may have facilitated the spread of the faith in the city. The early church expansion was fueled in large part by the actions of Saul and Ananias.
In his book, “When Did the Disciples Become Born Again?”, Howard M. Ervin, a professor at Oral Roberts University (ORU), explores the question, “When did Jesus’ disciples become born again?” This question has been a topic of debate for years, with many claiming that Jesus made them become believers before the crucifixion. In fact, the new covenant had not been promulgated yet, which makes it impossible to say for certain that the disciples were saved before that.
