The Early New Testament Church
SEMESTER 2 2021
Friday Daytime Unit
The church is far from perfect; whether we have in mind the early church or the church today. How did the church get started? What issues did those first Christians struggle with? How did God use his people to spread the light of the gospel from its beginnings in Judea and Jerusalem to the very heart of the Roman Empire?
In this unit, we study the Acts of the Apostles, or (to put it differently) the Acts of the risen Lord Jesus. We trace how God was at work through his imperfect but faithful people. We will also look at some of the letters of the New Testament in the setting that Acts provides, and see how they give us a window into the issues faced by the early church – and how the apostles dealt with these issues on the basis of the truth of the gospel of Christ. It is an interesting glimpse into the church then, and it provides guidance as the Lord Jesus continues to work through his imperfect people today.
