Israel 1.0 – Abraham
“Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation,and I will bless you;I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse;and all peoples on earthwill be blessed through you. Genesis 12:1–3

Israel 2.0 – Acts; When the Holy Spirit Comes

When the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8

Jerusalem – those most like us, ie., family.
Judea – those most like us, but not family.
Samaria – those not like us, perhaps another ethnicity.
Ends of the World – those a long way off.

Peter Stood Up

  1. God meets us where we are.
  2. Tells us the truth about ourselves. For all have sinnedand fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
    + Prefer Creator over creation
    + Believe we know more than God

Talk it over: To whom are you a witness—in your "Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the ends of the world"?
