Question: If your therory is true, why is Peter the only one that said anything on the day of Pentecost?

Answer: Peter was an outstanding preacher of the gospel. When someone is preaching, only one person can speak at a time. Jesus chose Peter for the honor of preaching on Pentecost. Peter's fellow apostles stood with him as he preached the gospel of Jesus Christ on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words.) Others preached at other times and occasions. Keep in mind that Peter also wrote: 'The elders who are among you I exhort, I who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that will be revealed: Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock....' (1 Peter 5:1-3).
