Mid-Acts or Acts 28? - Part 9

Mid-Acts or Acts 28 - Part 9

The lesson on February 4, 2018 was part 9 of the "Mid-Acts or Acts 28?" study.  Last week Wayne reviewed the gifts given during the Acts and compared them to the gifts given after Acts 28 and clarified the distinctions.  This week we looked at the body and compared it to the one body where Christ is head.  By comparing how the body was constructed by every believer with gifts during Acts, where members could be part of the head in particular, it doesn't compare to the new body created from the two (Jew and Gentile) where Christ is the head.  Our body today was created new after Acts 28 and is not the same body of Acts.  The scripture reading was from 1 Thessalonians 2:13-16 KJV

"13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe. 14 For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: 15 Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: 16 Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost."
