Acts describes the explosive spread of God's good news. After Jesus' ascension, the Gospel was first proclaimed in Jerusalem and to the Jews. It then spread to Samaria, the coastal plain and Caesarea, before expanding to all cities of the Mediterranean, including Rome, the great capital of the known world.
This 5-week study, covering 8:1-15:35, invites you to follow the activities of the two great Church leaders -- Peter and Paul. However, these men do not stand alone. The support and service of others, such as John, Stephen, Philip, Barnabas, James, Apollos, Priscilla, Aquila and Lydia, maximized the impact of Peter and Paul's leadership.
These faithful believers display Spirit-led interdependency of Christian leadership and community -- a legacy for us to carry on today.
