17 October 2021 (am) – Acts 13:13-52
|Andy Bruins preaching from Acts on Sunday 17th October 2021.|
This is the first of Paul’s sermons that we have recorded in Acts. Along with Barnabas, he has arrived in Pisidian Antioch and entered the synagogue. This is a message aimed at people who know the stories of the Old Testament, and so we have a brilliant example of how Paul explained the gospel to who knew the scriptures.
Q Read v13-16. Who is Paul preaching to?
Q Read v17-22. What had God done for His people in history? How many times did He rescue them in the past?
Q Read v23-37. What evidence does Paul present to prove that Jesus is the final ultimate Saviour that God had sent?
Q Read v38-41 What does Paul say is necessary for Salvation? Why is it an urgent matter?
Q Read v42-52. Why do you think the message Paul preached offended the Jews but not the Gentiles?
Q What do you think Paul means when has says of the Jews, “you do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life”?
Why do the Jews reject the gospel? Do you think this still happens today?
