Ascension – Pentecost

Triumphant Easter, day of first-fruits, in which Christ arose as Victor over sin, death and the grave. Glorious ascension, for he went through the heavens to Father’s throne, where he was crowned with glory and honor to rule over the works of God’s hands. Blessed Pentecost, feast of harvest, when he came to dwell with […]

Christmas always creates a great stir as weeks in advance […]

Acts 2:14 – 47

Introductory remarks: We now come in our outlines to the study of Peter’s Pentecostal address. The material in this address is compacted and weighty, and it requires some thought to apprehend its sense. When we studied this chapter in my society we found that we could not cover this address of Peter in one session. […]

Acts 1:1 – 2:4

Introductory remarks: We believe that the study of the book of Acts will be of great interest to you young folks. It is not easy to say just what point of interest is brought out most prominently in this large Bible-book. Instructive is what we read in Lenski’s “Introduction” to the book of Acts. We […]
