Acts 16:1-10 (October 21, 2018)
Paul and Silas start out on their journey to the cities of the First Missionary Journey, letting them know the good news from the Jerusalem Council. While in Derbe, they meet Timothy, a spiritual prodigy, and ask him to join them on their journey. After some exasperating challenges, they end up in Troas, where Paul has the Macedonian Call. Luke, the physician, joins the group as well, and we are perched on the edge of Europe, ready to spread the Gospel to a whole new continent.
Acts 15:36-41 (October 14, 2018)
Acts 15:22-35 (October 7, 2018)
Following their decision at the Jerusalem Council, the godly men pen a letter explaining their decision to the Gentile Church in Antioch. The letter encourages the Gentile believers and explains to them the requirements asked of them to not offend their Jewish brothers. In addition, Judas and Silas are sent as "tradents" to explain the letter and provide additional strengthening and encouragement to the Antioch church.
Acts 15:13-21 (September 30, 2018)
After Peter's powerful retelling of God's work at Cornelius's house, the Jerusalem Council continues. Due to Peter's willingness to have table fellowship with Gentiles, the value of his testimony may have been compromised to the Judaizers, but no one could besmirch the testimony of James the Just, the half-brother of Jesus and a meticulous follower of the Mosaic Law. James's response with a quotation from the prophets about God calling the Gentiles to Him seals the fate of the council and relieving the Gentile believers from the burden of the Mosaic Law.
This Five-part series is an examination of the final Song of the Suffering Servant in the Book of Isaiah. Each week includes a detailed look at one of the stanzas from this prophetic song. Biblical scholars searched the scriptures to discover who Isaiah was describing, but it wasn't until Jesus came that a definitive answer was given.
