The only thing better than a good story is a good sequel. The book of Acts is the intended sequel to the gospel of Luke, showing how the new community of faith applied Christ’s teachings to life and how they proclaimed His message throughout the world. In this course, learners complete an exegetical study of the Book of Acts by focusing on the biblical theology of the book, the historical background of events, and the theological emphasis of the speeches. The goal of the course is to enable learners to articulate the message of Acts in ways that are both textually accurate and contemporarily relevant, and to apply that message to life.

The depth of the information was great and it allowed me to learn things about this book that I did not know previously. The level of detail helped me gain more insight and have an even greater appreciation for this book.
