Peter’s brief but succinct preaching is interrupted by the action of the Holy Spirit “fallen” upon the Gentile hearers. This amazes the Jewish contingent who had accompanied Peter from Joppa, but this was unmistakable, since this is what had been experienced in the Upper Room in Jerusalem, when the disciples began speaking in tongues and extolling God. The evidence of he work of the Spirit is so evident that Peter knows these new believers should be baptized, and in the “name of Jesus Christ” they are. Peter now remains some days in Caesarea with the new Gentile followers of Jesus.
