The “Colossal” Character of Paul
Is church flourishing today? In the first century of the Roman empire, the early Christian church thrived despite pagan influences and significant opposition. There is a pattern in the book of Acts that reveals the reason for the Christian church’s rapid growth. Can this pattern be applied to our church in the 21st century?
Join us for an 8-hour, 4-part series on the book of Acts, beginning with chapter 9. We will study the biblical record of Paul and how he fulfilled his mission in furthering the Christian church in the first century of the Roman world. Some questions that we will explore:
- How does Paul’s transformation from persecutor of Christians to advocate of Christianity prepare him for his God-appointed mission?
- Why does Mary Baker Eddy Eddy use the descriptive word “colossal” for the character of Paul (Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896, p. 360:7)?
- How might we describe Paul’s nature under maximum pressure?
- What is the theme of Paul’s preaching, to Jews and gentiles, throughout the Roman Empire?
- How does the book of Acts define what church is and what church is not?
- Why does church grow so rapidly in the first century of the Roman empire?
Included in the series
PowerPoint slides will be screen shared via Zoom during each presentation.
Downloadable handouts: an outline of Acts with study questions (chapters 9 – 28), maps of Paul’s journeys, a timeline of Paul’s life and letters, and a bibliography.
