Description

The primary claim of the Christian faith is that God, the universal creator, has in person entered space and time in his eternal Son, Jesus Christ; and that Christ's coming, culminating in his death and resurrection, represents the central cultural event in the human story, and the one hope of salvation for all humanity. The Book of Acts, Luke's sequel to his account of Jesus' ministry, accompanies Jesus' disciples as they respond to his mandate to take the good news about Jesus to 'Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the ends of the earth.' The class traces the exciting and challenging story of the beginnings of the global mission, and attempts to relate the text to contemporary missional realities through detailed exegesis of important passages and more general reflection. The aim is to rekindle a sense of commitment to the church's worldwide calling, as well as learning the lessons of the pioneer generation of witnesses.
