were all together in the same [place]


When the FIFTIETH DAY AFTER PASSOVER AND THE TIME TO CELEBRATE THE END OF THE GRAIN HARVEST had finally come, the apostles and followers of Jesus were all together in one place



We cannot be sure whether “they” refers only to the disciples now called apostles (1:2 and 1:13-14) or to everyone gathered together which was about 120 followers of Jesus (1:15). The use of “all” in this verse seems to indicate all 120, but 2:14says “Peter stood up with the eleven.” So it appears that 120 were present and involved, yet the 12 did most of the speaking to the public.
