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

Here is a new audio series on The Inspiration of Scriptures. It begins with an overview of the Reformation and then transitions into the inspired Word of God. As it says in 2 Timothy 3:14-17 KJV "14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."
