(From An Alphabetical Analysis by Charles Welch)

The Greek word soma which is translated "body" in the N.T. occurs 147 times, and is translated "body" in all passages except two where it is rendered "slave" (Rev. 18:13) and "bodily" (2 Cor. 10:10). In the majority of cases soma refers to the actual physical body (Matt. 5:29, 26:12), in some cases it refers to the spiritual body that shall be given in resurrection (1 Cor. 15:35, 37, 44). With these aspects of the term we are not immediately concerned. The word "body," however, is used in 1 Corinthians, Ephesians and Colossians of a...

ONE BAPTISM

Ephesians 4:5

Just One, not a hundred, Just ONE, Not two; just ONE.

There is only ONE BAPTISM God has been pleased to include in the Seven-fold Unity of the Spirit recorded in Eph. 4:4-6. There is ONE BAPTISM God has commanded to be kept, safeguarded, watched over, treasured and observed attentively as being one of the facets of the listed seven-fold Unity of the Spirit. We are not asked to "make" this Unity, it is already made by God - rather we are asked to treasure it. The name of the ONE BAPTISM is not spelled out in the text but it must have the...

After the close of the Acts period and the setting aside of Israel as God’s source for salvation (Acts 28:28), the Apostle Paul was given a special ministry (Col 1:25). His ministry was to reveal God’s hidden plan to the Gentiles and was the last ministry given to the Apostle Paul. This hidden plan was never before made known in other ages or to the other generations (Col 1:26). Paul was God’s prisoner/minister to preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ (Eph 3:1,8)

What so special about Acts 28:28?

Simply stated, we believe the passage in Acts 28:28-31 is when the Apostle Paul declares to the Jewish leadership that the final opportunity for their acceptance of Jesus as Christ is over. From that point on the message for the plan of salvation is now authorized to be sent from the Gentiles, apart from Israel. Prior to this point in scripture, salvation was always either through or with the Jew. At this point the nation of Israel has been put on hold but will be still receive the promises and blessings made to them through Abraham in the future (...

The Acts Period

The book of Acts is sometimes called “The Book Between,” “a link,” the key to one phase of right division. It is therefore our desire to unfold for the workman a step by step account of the activities concerning the Holy Spirit as He takes the things of Christ and shows them to us throughout this historical period.  There is also a complimentary audio series you can listen to in the Audio Room.

The book of Acts is clearly marked off into three parts. The first part is limited to Jerusalem and covers the first seven chapters. The second part is confined to...

The Gifts of the Spirit

Pentecost cannot be thought of, since the great day recorded in Acts 2, apart from spiritual gifts. By spiritual gifts we mean not the gifts in grace bestowed to believers in all dispensations, but those miraculous gifts that were such a feature in the church during the period covered by the Acts. We can say, for we have demonstrated it, that the appeal to the Old Scriptures is a characteristic of the period covering Acts 1-28. And we can say with equal assurance that the hope of Israel which occurs in the first chapter persists unto the last chapter of the...

The Resurrection of Christ. The Easter holiday is the most celebrated event in all of Christianity.  1 Corinthians 15:12 is where Paul was instructing the church in Corinth that the resurrection was real and Christ lives. Further Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15:20-23 “But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his...

The New Covenant Promised For this is My blood of the New Covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins" (Matt. 26:28). In saying "this is," the Lord Jesus explained that the blood He was about to shed was the blood of the New Covenant, but He did not define what the New Covenant was. To do that was not necessary, for the disciples had the New Covenant promised and described in the words of Jeremiah: "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a New Covenant with the house of Judah; not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I...
