Three Thousand Souls

Three thousand souls!  That’s the number of souls scripture tells us were rescued the day the Holy Spirit came upon the apostles.  This is a remarkable number.  Can you imagine the scene?  Apostles are preaching all over Jerusalem and speaking in every language known to man.  We’ve all heard these stories a hundred times about …
