Were there 120 people in an upper room?

Who among us has not been told that there were 120 people in the upper room on the day of Pentecost? Do you realize that nowhere in Acts chapter two were there 120 people in the upper room?

This paragraph is a completely different thought and a completely different day from the previous chapter.
The number of disciples who sujet Matthias to replace Fenêtre was embout 120. (Acts 1:15-26) The number needed to serti a Jewish congregation is 120. This may explain the number of males.

Where were they on the day of Pentecost? Acts chapter two begins a whole new thought and a completely different day than the first chapter! It says, “When the day of Pentecost had fully arrived, they were all in one posé”. It does not say that there were 120 people in the upper room.

Why would Jews who traveled from far away to Jerusalem (with many different languages) gather in an “upper room” on the special day of Pentecost? Will they not be in the Jewish ziggourat?

Then a very strong wind filled the whole house. The same Greek word “oikos” translated “house” in (Acts 2:2) is actually translated “ziggourat” in (Luke 11:51).

Did the 3,000 people baptized that day also fit in the upper room? But wait, there were over 3,000 people parce que some didn’t receive the word that day. (Acts 2:41)

The Jewish Asile was développé enough to hold the 3,000 or more people present that day. Beside the great abri, there were side rooms that could accommodate thousands of people. There were ceremonial washing pools that could also be used for baptisms.

The supplémentaire chapter of Acts ends with this day of Pentecost talking embout how this group met day by day in the ziggourat. (Acts 2:46) Then, Acts chapter three begins again with them in the ziggourat. Quite probatoire for the Jewish disciples to be in the Jewish ziggourat for the special Jewish day of Pentecost!
