PodcastAndy Bruins preaching from Acts on Sunday 26th June 2022.

To avoid the riots in Thessalonica, Paul and Silas are sent away, about 50 miles southwest to a town called Berea. Once again, the brothers make their way to the Jewish Synagogue to share the Good News with both Jews and Greeks. This short section gives us a little portrait of a community who are “of more noble character than the Thessalonians”.

Q Why do you think people consider the Bible to be a boring, dusty old book!?

Q Read v10-14. How did the Bereans receive the message that Paul and Silas spoke to them? Did they just accept it at face value?

Q How did the Bereans determine if what they were hearing was true? Why would this have been quite a challenge for them in that day and age?

Q How would you describe what having a “noble character” means? What would the opposite look like? Have you ever encountered these different responses to the Gospel?

Q Why do the Jews from Thessalonica come to Berea? How does Luke describe the problem they had with these missionaries in v13?

Q Why is the Word of God so divisive?
