This paper proposes to examine the stance of Peter both in his position toward the Old Testament which he quotes and toward the people before him on Pentecost. It is the contention of this writer that Peter was a man with "both feet in the world." Moreover, Peter's world consisted of two separate but often merging spheres of life. There is the orb of the past, full of history and tradition, but there is also the sphere of a living present with its dynamic reality in the living Christ and His Spirit.
