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.
The lesson on February 18, 2018 was part 11 of "Mid-Acts or Acts 28?" study. Wayne continued the thought of comparing the body of Christ metaphor to the church which is his body digging deeper in scripture to find evidence that the gifts that were given during Acts were fading away and those gifts given with the revelation of the Mystery were individuals who were mending the previous body of Christ into the new calling and the gospel of the unsearchable riches of Christ. We also looked at the laying on of hands were part of the old economy which we read in Numbers and Ezekiel. The gifts that were part of the Acts period slowly faded away and all that we have left now is the gospel of the unsearchable riches of Christ which is key to the blessed hope we have in the Mystery. The scripture reading was from 2 Timothy 1:1-6 KJV
