GETTING READY: Studying the Book of Acts in 2014-2015

For the 2014-2015 season, we're going to be study and competing on the Book of Acts.  More correctly called "The Acts of the Apostles", this book was written by Luke (a doctor and traveling companion of Paul) as a sequel to the gospel he wrote.

Luke focussed his gospel on communicating that God was offering the Good News to all peoples - Jews, Gentiles, rich, poor, Roman, barbarian, sinner, "righteous", etc.  So, it makes sense that in his second book he traces the way that the apostles learned that Christianity was not merely for the Jews in Jerusalem, but rather for all peoples everywhere.

As you read this book, be on the lookout for all the different ways that God guided His people as Christianity grew from a tiny sect of Judaism into a religion all its own that embraced everyone.
