Join the MVMNT: Caesarea Antioch

JOIN THE MVMNT

WEEKLY: The author of both the Books of Luke and Acts is Luke, an observant, educated, historically-oriented figure and writer.

The book of Luke was given as a detailed account of the life and Gospel of Jesus to fortify the faith of the Believers. Acts is the sequel. We get the first hand account of how Jesus’ Life, Death and Resurrection went VIRAL, eventually spreading throughout the whole globe.

This fall we are going to look at a few of the tools and key elements that sparked this wildfire to see how we can continue that MVMNT here, today.

READ: Acts Chapters 9:32 - 12:24

REFLECT:

  1. Why do you think Barnabas went to get Saul before he began extensive work with the church at Antioch? Why do you think they spent an entire year teaching the church at Antioch?

  2. What does this tell us about the kind of foundation needed for a church to become strong enough to be a base for the worldwide expansion of the Church? What all goes into laying such a foundation?

  3. Even though Saul and Barnabas taught the church and, in that sense, laid the foundation, what other factors contributed to preparing the way for their work? How can you envision faithful men and women being used as God’s tools in building a strong base for expansion of the Church?
