Acts (Program #72) – A Concluding Word

From his prison cell in Rome, the Apostle Paul wrote stirring words to the saints in Philippi. “Even now, Christ will be magnified in my body whether through life or through death”, and then again, “For me to live is Christ and to die is gain”. Was Paul speaking matters of doctrine and theology for our future study and contemplation, or was this the living reality of a genuine witness of Christ? Welcome to our final program of the life study of Acts, a program you will surely not want to miss.

Acts (Program #68) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (34)

For the third time during his two year imprisonment in Caesarea, the Apostle Paul is in a courtroom-like setting, making his defense before a magistrate of the Roman government. And on this occasion, he reveals that God has selected him to be both minister and witness of the very Christ in resurrection. These are not general words. The words given to Paul by inspiration that conveyed much rich spiritual meaning and content. We look closely at this marvelous expression on today’s life study of the Bible.

Mark (Program #29) – The Preparation of the Slave-Savior for His Redemptive Service (3)

During the period of His gospel service, the Lord Jesus was traveling from Galilee first north toward Caesarea Philippi and Mount Hermon.  Then returning south all the way to Jerusalem. With Him on this long journey which took roughly three years were a small number of faithful disciples particularly Peter, James and John were with the Lord step by step.  And thorough out this period they witness first hand all the items, including the miracles, the teachings, the healing and His dealing with the religious opposers.

As those who desire to know Him and to know His word richly today, we need to realize that this long journey and all these events were not random. From the beginning the Lord’s intention was to arrive at Jerusalem, the religious, cultural and governmental capital.  For it must be in Jerusalem during the specific month and even on the appointed day that He would be offered up as the Lamb of God to accomplish His all redeeming and all-inclusive death.  But we also need to realize that all the preceding event were part of the Lord’s preparation and in addition for the real preparation of His disciples not just to be witnesses but to be those who would pass through His death and enter into the reality of His resurrection.
