In the fall of 2020, our weekly book studies began with “Luke: The Gospel of Reassurance” by Michael Card. For Advent, we used Amy-Jill Levine’s “Light of the World, and for Lent we used, “Be The Bridge,” by Latasha Morrison. These studies, each challenging in their own way, offered us insights into God’s love for us in Jesus and moved us to consider our life of discipleship more closely. This Book of Acts study builds on these past studies by showing us that faithful discipleship involves sharing our faith with others and inviting others to become a part of Christ’s Body, the Church. Picking up where the Gospel of Luke left off, the Book of Acts takes us through the founding and growth of the Christian Church. Beginning with the resurrected Jesus’ ascension into heaven, we follow the acts of the Apostles as they spread the good news of the living Lord, nurture new converts in the faith, face dangerous prosecution, and organize to take the gospel message to the world. During this time, as this new religious movement grows, other influential church leaders emerge. In Acts, we meet the Apostle Paul for the first time. Please join me for this study through the Book of Acts. Preregistration for the Acts study is not required, but it would be appreciated for planning purposes.
The study guide, “Acts,” by N.T. Wright, and pictured above, is available through Amazon and other online book vendors. Please purchase the book yourself. Prior to the first session, participants should have read through page 15 of the study guide which includes chapter one, “Luke Story Continues.”
