 “Separate yourselves from this untoward generation.” This separation was founded on a real and moral work-“repent”: the past was all to be judged, and publicly demonstrated by their reception among Christians by baptism, in order to receive the remission of their sins, and participate in this heavenly gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2 by J.N. Darby)
 It was not mere remorse, still less a change of mind only, but a real judgment of self before God, whose part they now took against themselves. (Acts 2:37-49 by W. Kelly)
 They were to be baptized with water in the name of Jesus for remission. Not till then was the believing Jew to receive the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven….the favored Jew in Acts 2 had to be baptized before he receives this wondrous gift, the hitherto despised Gentile {Acts 10:44-48} receives the Holy Ghost before being baptized in the name of the Lord. (Acts 2:37-49 by W. Kelly)
 It is striking to notice the various ways of divine wisdom. At Pentecost the believing Jews had to be baptized before they received the gift of the Spirit. They must solemnly take the place of death with Christ to all they had previously trusted. And even to this day the Jews feel its force; for when one of them is baptized to Christ Jesus, he is viewed and treated as dead to them and their religion. (Remarks on Daniel 4 by W. Kelly)
