I'm more than a little confused. Are you saying that you knew that bible verse cold and that there was no event mentioned that could have been the intended response? Then why did you rule out only the Last Supper? Or are you just using that as an example? But, if you have a thorough knowledge of bible history, which seems to be what you are saying, then why would you use the argument "because Jesus is no longer living"? Acts was after Jesus' resurrection and before Paul's Epistles. So Jesus was definitely living during that time period. And, as I mentioned a few posts upthread, it is possible
quite common in the bible to make reference to events past (including the Last Supper).
I won't say I know the bible inside and out, but it is a strength. I'm a bit of a history freak, Biblical or otherwise. Maybe I shouldn't have said "because Jesus is no longer living", but he is no longer on earth. Acts 1 has Jesus ascending to heaven, starting at verse one. I knew enough to know that except for a couple verses that start Acts Jesus has left the building, so to speak. The question would have had to say "had occured" (past tense) for it to be the last supper, I ruled out last supper very quickly. Jesus ascended his followers are together, "what happened?", because what happened has to be the answer. As it turns out the event was a meeting of disciples/followers, nothing too important.
Upon reading it. The right answer is "What is the addition of a new disciple?"
If they were after last supper, I don't understand why the writers just didn't use other references to the upper room from the gospels. I assumed "upper room" was negbait to try and get the "last supper" as an answer. I was looking at things like the "introduction of the holy spirit" as an answer. I couldn't find anything that fit. Pentacost, was a really good answer for the question.
