Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey away. And when they had entered, they went up to the upper room, where they were staying, Peter and John and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot and Judas the son of James. All these with one accord were devoting themselves to prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.
The disciples had seen Yeshu go at a distance of about 1.2 kilometres outside Jerusalem. Then they went back to their room to pray and to wait. There in seclusion they were just the eleven remaining chosen apostles (See Mark 3:16-19) and the loyal women, to whom were now added Yeshu’s own brothers.
It was a small group with a deep desire to know God’s will for their lives. How would the Spirit come? What must they be doing?
