Mid-Acts or Acts 28? - Part 12

Mid-Acts or Acts 28 - Part 12

The lesson on February 25, 2018 was part 12 of the "Mid-Acts or Acts 28?" study.  This week Wayne takes an even deeper look at the message of transition from the Jew and Gentile to compare what was taught to the Gentiles after a Jewish group rejected what was taught.  It looks at the message including the kingdom of God which was preached by Paul in Acts 28:23 and in Acts 28:31.  Did it change after Acts 28:28?  No.  At some point in time after Acts, PAul received the Mystery by revelation and wrote Ephesians where he writes about the gifts of categories in chapter 4 that we certain individuals gifted (Eph 4:12-13 KJV) For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.  Wayne presents a model that is unique in how it explains the transition of the body of Christ into the post Acts period where the one body exists which is described as the church which is His body where Christ is the head.  Be sure an look at the charts provided in the handout to see the model that is being presented.  The scripture reading was from John 10:11-16 KJV

"11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. 13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. 15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd."
