The first example of Gospel preaching after the cross was that of Peter. We have five examples of his preaching recorded in Acts.
- Two to the crowds in Jerusalem, explaining miracles that had just happened
- Two in front of councils after he was arrested
- Finally, one to Cornelius’s household
What is remarkable about these five sermons is that they all have the same outline! In Gospel preaching in Acts: The preaching of Peter I have put all five in parallel and examined the similarities and differences.
I took a somewhat different approach when I preached this, focussing on the second of the five addresses, and thinking about how we can follow Peter’s example in a day when such dramatic miracles are not as common.
