Acts 22: What does it mean to call on the name of the Lord?

In his Pentecost sermon in Acts 2, Peter concluded his quotation of Joel with this statement, “And it shall come to pass, that whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21, cf Joel 2:32).

This is a serious mistake, and today’s reading helps us to know this. In Acts 18:24-28, we learn that…
