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

Many books have been written about Romans because of its importance. In the canon, Romans follows the Gospels and the Acts because it is so important that has so many great themes in it. Romans talks about the wrath of God, the Gospel of God, it talks bout Sin and Sins, and takes us back to the covenant with Abraham at Sinai, then to back to Adam. When it takes us back to Adam, it brings us forth to the one man who destroyed sin.
