Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom, builds on The Bible Timeline and Matthew (but you do NOT have to have completed those to enjoy this study!) by showing how Christ’s Kingdom on earth is empowered to carry out His work in the world. The book of Acts shows the Church, enlivened by the Holy Spirit, teaching, preaching, healing, and restoring outcasts in the same way that Jesus did on earth.
The Acts of the Apostles provides an historic framework for understanding the rest of the New Testament. Paul’s letters in particular come alive in a new way when they are read within the context of the Acts narrative.
The study of Acts is already in progress. Check back to the Adult Faith Formation section of the parish website for future Bible study offerings!
