[quote=mercygate]That is the weirdest thing I have ever heard. When they were all together with one mind in constant prayer with Mary . . . “about one-hundred and twenty persons . . .” (duh). (My personal question about this passage is wondering how many rooms there were in Jerusalem that would accommodate 120 people.)
Acts 1:13-14 doesn’t mention the 120 but names the people, apostles, Mary, relatives and other women who were praying **in the ** upper room.
Acts 1:15-26 stands up in the midst of the brothers (no women mentioned here) and 120 is stated as being in the one place (not the upper room or one room). Maybe it refers to the house as a whole which is mentioned when the Spirit comes.
Acts 2:1-4 states they were all in one place and the wind filled **the entire house ** when the tongues of fire appeared.
I don’t think these three events took place on one day but on different days so it is not exactly clear who received the Holy Spirit, although it can probably be assumed that all the foregoing persons mentioned were present if they were staying in that house.
