The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1The apostles, filled with the Holy Ghost, and speaking divers languages, are admired by some, and derided by others;
14whom Peter disproves;
37he baptizes a great number that were converted;
41who afterwards devoutly and charitably converse together; the apostles working many miracles, and God daily increasing his church.
