The lesson on January 10, 2021 was an introduction to the new Acts study, focused on the when and why of books that were written by the Apostle Paul. This lesson explained the objectives of looking at Paul’s letters and finding out when were they written relative to Acts? Also, if possible, we will put a secular date on the epistles and events encountered in the Acts. Is the declaration in Acts 28 in or out of “the Acts of the apostles? What importance can we associate with the timing of the mystery and the destruction of the temple? Does the Acts introduce a new ministry or continue and confirm what was previously given? Wayne provided us some resources to download and read for our preparation of this study. Wayne established our methodology which will be ask, search and see! We will answer the question was Acts a continuation or the beginning of a new dispensation? Wayne finally took us to the first chapter and addressed the former treaty which established the author of Luke and we looked at Luke 24:36-53 which tied into Acts 1:1-14 "Former treatise: A beginning" Then Acts 1:15-28:31 "Present treatise: A continuance" The scripture reading was from Acts 1:1-7 KJV
This study started on October 21, 2018 and it is taking a focus on the three places in scripture where the Apostle Paul uses this term. This study will provide the context of these passages and help the student of scripture gain confidence about this subject through the right division of scripture.
Practical lessons and Right Division is focusing on the walk we should take when being worthy of the calling Right Division makes clear to us in this post Acts 28 age. In the previous study we looked at the post Acts timeframe and learned how the Apostle PAul revealed the Mystery of Ephesians 3:9. Afterwards, when you read Ephesians 4:1 KJV, PAul is saying "I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,".
This study looks at Paul’s latter ministries and journey(s) which would have occurred after the close of Acts and the writing of the last seven books Paul wrote before he was executed by Niro. The goal of this study is to find evidence of Paul's fourth and perhaps a fifth missionary journey and when The Mystery was revealed to him during his journeys. Why this study? We need answers to some important questions: When did the church which is his body begin? This is essentially the same as asking – when was the mystery of Eph 3:9 revealed?
In this study, Wayne Stewart will look at the beginning of the church which we are a part of today. The Acts provides the history of Israel and Gentiles in how they had a relationship with Jesus Christ after his death, burial and resurrection. At what point in time did God give specific instructions to the Gentiles apart from Israel? This study will look at this question and help you understand the significance of finding out the answer.
This study is a follow up to the ABC's of Right Division. The lessons in this study will take a deeper look into the basis or right division and why it is important to understand how it helps you understand scripture. It will compare other beliefs like Preterism, and those based in covenant theology and look at some critiques of what opponents of right division object to this fundamental methodology of handling scripture accurately.
