Description

Acts Bible Study Questions: A Bible Study Workbook

When people ask about forming a first time Bible Study group, they usually ask with which book they might begin? My answer is ‘Acts’ unequivocally, because of it’s story-telling brilliance – shipwrecks, parables, narrative, speeches. Luke, the author of Acts as well as the Gospel, is one of the Bible’s most colorful writers. In addition to the way he keeps the action going, the most important point is watching the Holy Spirit guide the action of the early Church and see how it continues that today with our lives and faith communities. Background and thoughtful questions to help guide you to key points in each chapter are provided. BibleRoads workbooks are intended for exactly this kind of thoughtful interaction and exchange as people explore the Scriptures together.

    This study is so important for me. After spending 2-3 hours per week preparing for each chapter, I feel that I would like to facilitate it one more time once this session is over, so I can really process the information and add to it.

    I have never really paid much attention to maps until this study and am learning how vital it is to understand just what Paul’s commitment to the believers was. I never before considered his absolute boldness and courage–leaving one place where he was beaten, stoned, vilified and ridiculed, threatened–only to return to the same place after a while to see how the believers were doing and to encourage them at frightful odds.

    Another eye-opening thing for me was to discover Paul’s vision. Long before he finally traveled to Rome, he had the vision/desire as he himself expressed “I must see Rome.” (NRSV) And one of the many sub-themes of the book of Acts was that Christianity was compatible with the Roman way of life as we learn of many high-placed officials of Rome who along with their entire household converted to Christianity. So it is understandable that Paul had to witness in Rome–the seat of The Holy Roman Empire to declare Christ’s universality. Theology as geography!

    Some questions: Was Paul a Jewish Stoic? And/or was he educated by Gamaliel in the way of Stoicism, Epicureanism, and Platoism in order to address the crowds at the Areopagas?

    We are just learning that Acts does not exist in a vacuum, but is intertwined with Galatians, Corinthians, Ephesians, etc. Hello geography.

    We all thank you for your questions and have observed that in the beginning the questions were quite obvious but as the study progresses the questions challenge us to think more deeply and substantially. In any given week we sometimes dangle between gratitude for being encouraged to think and whining because things are not so easily and glaringly grasped.

    Many thanks for this opportunity.

    Sincerely,

    I have just read the review written by Doug. I am feeling in total agreement with his detailed explanation. I have just finished studying the Book of Acts weekly with a group in our church, using your workbook as a leader. I have been appreciating Paul in a whole new way. His example of accepting and fulfilling the mission that JESUS gave him. The sacrifice and courage and love and strength etc that Paul expressed, to fulfill that mission. I appreciate Paul’s leadership and example for the disciples who were also doing their best to follow Jesus instructions to them. To spread the Gospel, the Good News that they learned from Jesus. How grateful I am that Luke was willing to spend so much of his life traveling with Paul, thus to be able to write from first hand knowledge of what Paul did and healed and taught and overcame. How would we have been able to gain the fuller understanding of Jesus’s teachings? And from the other writers of the Gospels and all those who contributed their remembrances of what Jesus did and taught to those writers. I am so much more grateful to them all, now that I know more about the sacrifices they made to share this. Including the translators and many others through history who gave their lives to witnessing these ideas to others. Amazing that we have it in this day and age to bring healing and peace to our lives. It definitely inspires me to carry on their good work.
    It also makes me very grateful for YOUR dedication to YOUR mission of sharing the Good News in the Bible with so many people! Without the workbooks and CDs of your classes, I would not have gained the inspiration and motivation that I have gained recently from the study of the New Testiment. Our study group chose to listen to your CDs together, and use your workbook to help us think about what we had read. It guided us to in depth thinking about what was happening in the lives of the people we were reading about. I’m glad we only studied one or two chapters a week, so it had time to sink in. We also shared ideas in our group meeting that we gained from various translations of the Bible and other sources of Bible history.
    Thank you so much!

    I love our Bible Study. It has been wonderful! We are really enjoying the scholarship and fellowship. Everyone prepares to the best of their available time, but the freedom to share when you are surrounded by friends wanting to understand the Bible more. is phenomenal. I have learned my friends are quite resourceful and scholarly!

    Even more, for the first time in reading a chapter through, I am seeing the continuity of the story of Paul and the other apostles and the church. In our weekly Bible Lesson, we get pieces of the puzzle, but this study is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle and seeing the whole picture.
    Thank you for having the vision to set up the workbooks. Please keep going on your quest!
