Jesse Sorrel will be leading a Men’s Small Group.
The Book of Acts is a fast-moving historical account of the first three decades of the church. Acts begins in Jerusalem just after Jesus’ resurrection, recounts how the Gospel reached what are Syria, Lebanon, Cyprus, Turkey, Greece, and Malta today, and closes with the apostle Paul’s two year ministry in Rome.
Highlights include the first Christian martyr Stephen; Peter’s prison break; the demolition of the barrier between Jewish and gentile Christians; the conversion of Saul, a leading persecutor of Christians, into Paul on the road to Damascus, and his subsequent missionary journeys.
As mentioned in the Origin of the Bible, the “Book” of Acts is actually a letter written to Theophilus by Luke, the doctor who accompanied Paul on his latter missionary journeys and used his medical training to carefully record what Paul and the other apostles said and did as inspired by God.
