BIB 212 The Book of Acts

3 s. hrs. This course exposes the biblical principles of ministry that laid the foundation of the early Church and enabled it to carry out the Great Commission.  Students will discover Luke’s purpose in writing the book to Theophilus by examining his selection and ordering of material, by detecting particular themes and by noting the significant people and events by which the story of Jesus spreads throughout the Roman Empire. A significant component of the course will be the development on a philosophy of ministry for the  proper functioning of the church going forward in the postmodern era.
