    Acts 11:19-26 ~ Barnabas and the Hellenists

    31/07/2019 Duración: 44min

    From the earliest days of the church, there has been one message uniting people across all human-made divides: love. That's the core of the gospel. Barnabas was sent to Antioch to make sure they were in compliance with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The post Acts 11:19-26 ~ Barnabas and the Hellenists appeared first on Laura L. Zielke.

    Acts 11:19-26 ~ Meanwhile in Phoenicia, Cyprus & Antioch

    30/03/2019 Duración: 52min

    This week we studied how the gospel spread north beyond Palestine into less Jewish-centric communities including Phoenicia, Antioch (in Syria) and the island of Cyprus. This section introduces us to the city of Antioch which will become the center of Christianity after the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70 and to the church who sends out...

  • Acts 11:1-18 ~ Clean.

    Acts 11:1-18 ~ Clean.

    21/02/2019 Duración: 25min

    In our final discussion on this passage, we got down to where the rubber meets the road. As we focused on Peter’s defense of his experience in Acts 11, we learned that he had become convinced his vision had nothing to do with food and everything to do with people.  And so the real question...

    21/02/2019 Duración: 43min

    As part of our continuing discussion about Peter’s speech(es) in Acts 10 and 11, we stepped back to look at how Peter and the apostles adjusted their presentation of the gospel message to each audience based on their knowledge of the Scriptures and Jewish religious traditions. Through comparison and contrast, we identified key elements of... The post Acts 10:1-11:18 ~ The Core of the Gospel Message (Kerygma) appeared first on Laura L. Zielke.

  • Acts 10:1-11:18 ~ Emphatic Repetition

    Acts 10:1-11:18 ~ Emphatic Repetition

    19/02/2019 Duración: 40min

    First we read of Cornelius’ vision. Then Peter’s. Then Peter mentions his to Cornelius, and Cornelius recounts his to Peter. Then Peter retells both visions to a new audience. But we’re reading it—so why all the repetition? What makes this event so special?  This week our discussion took us from analyzing Luke’s purposeful repetition to...

    Acts 10:1-33 ~ Peter & Cornelius (Overview)

    19/02/2019 Duración: 39min

    What happens when a hungry Jewish apostle has a vision about food? But not just any food! This vision involves certain “unclean” foods—the types of food he has avoided his entire life for religious reasons. What happens when during the trance he is commanded to eat the “unclean” food? Three times! What is the meaning... The post Acts 10:1-33 ~ Peter & Cornelius (Overview) appeared first on Laura L. Zielke.

    Acts 9:31-43 ~ Aeneas and Tabitha

    04/09/2018 Duración: 54min

    This week we studied two miracle stories in Acts 9 which have been preserved as a unit in ancient manuscripts: the healing of Aeneas and the raising of Tabitha (a.k.a. Dorcas) from the dead. We examined a variety of similarities and differences in each account and discussed why these two stories were juxtaposed. What truths...

    Acts 9:26-31 ~ Welcome to Jerusalem… Now, Go Home!

    04/09/2018 Duración: 54min

    This week we continued our study in Acts picking up with Saul’s first-recorded visit with the apostles in Jerusalem after his decision to follow Jesus. Everyone was skeptical, except Barnabas, one of the seven Hellenists who were chosen to serve the growing Christian community in Jerusalem. He was the only one willing to hear Saul’s...

    This week Craig Bondy (guest teacher) guided us through a detailed review of the timeline of Acts chapters 1-9. He also brought local and empire history into the timeline to help form a more complete historical context for this section of Scripture.

    Acts 9:19b-25 ~ Saul & the Nabateans

    05/07/2018 Duración: 43min

    This week we took a closer look at few passages that describe a time in Saul’s first few years as a follower of Jesus—particularly his time in Arabia (Nabatea). This journey is NOT mentioned in Acts at all; however, Paul mentions it in both his letter to the church in Galatia and his second (third?)...

    Acts 9:19b-30 ~ Wired with Wanderlust

    02/07/2018 Duración: 49min

    This week we worked on piecing together the evolution of Saul’s theology based on the account we have in Acts as well as his own testimony in Galatians. The more we reflected on the details of Saul’s life leading up to this moment, the more we saw how God had wired him with a passion...

    06/06/2018 Duración: 43min

    This week slowed our pace to take a closer look at Saul’s Damascus Road experience. Rather than focusing on the details of the event, we zoomed out to discuss the story behind the story. We explored how Saul’s life was dramatically and forever changed following his personal encounter with the risen Christ: We examined Saul’s...

    Acts 9:1-19a ~ Works-Based Worth

    24/05/2018 Duración: 44min

    This week, we picked up where we left off with Saul (a.k.a. Paul). We examined his background, education, and training. We discussed his “status” as self-appointed protector of Pharisaic Orthodoxy, and his insatiable desire to crush “The Way” wherever he traveled. As we developed a clear picture of Saul’s character, we saw that he was... The post Acts 9:1-19a ~ Works-Based Worth appeared first on Laura L. Zielke.

    22/05/2018 Duración: 49min

    This week, we completed our study of Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8. We discussed the passage in Isaiah that the eunuch was reading, and we talked about this being the first time the Suffering Servant’s identity was applied to the Messiah. We also briefly discussed the eunuch’s response to Philip’s interpretation as... The post Acts 8:26-40 ~ Of Whom Does the Prophet Speak? appeared first on Laura L. Zielke.

    Acts 8:26-40 ~ The Ethiopian Eunuch

    This week, we continued our study of Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch by investigating what we know (and don’t know) about the eunuch: where he came from, what his place was in society, how he traveled, and why someone from so far away would have made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. We also imagined the story... The post Acts 8:26-40 ~ The Ethiopian Eunuch appeared first on Laura L. Zielke.

    Acts 8:25-40 ~ God’s Incredible Timing

    14/05/2018 Duración: 45min

    This week, we began our study of a very familiar story about Philip the Evangelist and an official from Ethiopia (modern-day Sudan). We discussed God’s amazing timing in bringing these two men together at the perfect moment. We examined a variety of passages to determine whether the terms “angel” and “spirit” were interchangeable in this... The post Acts 8:25-40 ~ God’s Incredible Timing appeared first on Laura L.

    16/04/2018 Duración: 38min

    This week, we finished up our study of the interaction between the apostles and Simon Magus. For real. We zoomed in on the final verses of the narrative where Peter apparently ‘curses’ Simon for his attempt to purchase the ability to bestow the Holy Spirit. We discussed the difference between “believing” and faith that leads... The post Acts 8:20-24 ~ Not For Sale appeared first on Laura L. Zielke.

    This week we continued our discussion about Simon the magician and his desire to purchase the ability to bestow the gift of the Holy Spirit (which cannot be purchased). We were reminded that Jesus’ parable of the sower provides a way to understand the difference between an authentic conversion experience and one that has no roots,...
