CHRISTIANS IN ACTION

Studies in the Acts of the Apostles

SUNDAY MORNING TEACHING EPIPHANY - LENT 2019

Sunday 11am at St John's

We have a great deal to learn from the example of the early Christians in Action, as shown in the book of Acts. The book of Acts is actually volume 2 of Luke's gospel. In the gospel Luke tells us about Jesus teaching and ministry; in Acts he tells us how the Good News about Jesus spread from Jerusalem to Rome - the centre of the ancient world.

In Acts we see the beginning of the church, inspired and led by God's Spirit, and part of God's plan of salvation. We see a growing church, a vigorous and vital church, and a church which deals with problems and questions.

SIGNPOSTS

Sunday 18:30 at St John's - Epiphany 2019

Pointers to Jesus in St. John's Gospel

St. John tells us why and how he wrote his Gospel in John 20:30-31:
"Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name."

The whole of St. John's gospel is a series of signposts pointing us towards Jesus - a selection of miracles and teaching to help us recognise Jesus, the Son of God.

This teaching series will focus on some of the highlights from John's gospel, sharing the same aim as St. John.
