Acts - Chapter 19 (Episode 18)

Paul's Third Missionary journey largely consists of time spent in Ephesus. When Paul first rolls into town, he encounters a group of people who seem to welcome him, but had not yet heard the full message of Jesus, but instead appeared to be followers of John the Baptist. What all this means is a little confusing and so we wrestle with that account here.

Paul's Second Missionary Journey is well underway as Paul crosses the sea to speak the Gospel to those in Philippi, Thessalonica and Berea. But Paul's journey doesn't end there. Now Paul is sent from harm's way to the great city of Athens where he encounters a very different audience.

Acts - Chapter 15 (Episode 14)

The Jerusalem Council in Acts 15 is often considered the centerpiece of the Book of Acts. Everything so far has been leading up to the Gospel being shared not just to Jews, but also to Gentiles and now once and for all the question of where Gentiles fit into God's plan of salvation must be answered definitively and so it is.

Acts - Chapters 13-14 (Episode 13)

In Acts 13-14, Paul and Barnabas are called by the Holy Spirit and sent on what we call the First Missionary Journey to Cyprus and Asia Minor. This journey sets a basic pattern for what will continue through the rest of Paul's life as he brings the Gospel to more and more people, both Jews and Gentiles. The missionary journey meets both success, but also much hardship and will lead to another crisis in the early church.

Acts - Chapter 9 (Episode 9)

Acts chapter 9 is all about Saul. Or is it? While Saul (later Paul) becomes one of the important players in the Book of Acts, even here we find the story of Saul's conversion is ultimately a story of Jesus continuing to work in and through the lives of people, even the most staunchly opposed foes, to bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth!
