Behind the Acts

Date: September, 08, 2021
Time: 10:30 AM

Join us each Wednesday morning at 10:30 AM.  

The New Testament church was started in the first century after Jesus lived.  That might not sound like a great time to do anything.  Communication was still primitive.  Transportation was difficult at best and often it was dangerous.  It was in that ancient world setting that God sent his Son first and then his church second.  In this four week class we will examine some of the details Behind The Acts of the apostles.

Everyone is welcome to attend this mid week study.  We’ll use Zoom for our meeting.  HERE is the link.

Lesson 1: Jewish Thought

The landscape of Palestine was complex politically and culturally.  In this first lesson we’ll take a look some of the larger divisions as God’s Old Testament people welcomed the Savior of the World.

Lesson 2: Roman Thought

The Pax Romana was the world that Jesus and the early church knew.  This was shaped not just with an iron military that enforced law and order, but also came with a culture that was corrupt and pagan.

Lesson 3: Current Events

Life in the ancient world was challenging.  Much of these details were taken for granted as the Scripture was written.  We’ll take a lesson to consider the daily grind.
