INSTRUCTOR: MARTIN MITTELSTADT, PhD
A study of the book of Acts with a focus on its theology, literary artistry, and depiction of Christian origins.
Acts is a pastoral narrative documenting the origin and advancement of the early church. As a story of the emerging Jesus movement, Luke charts the triumphs and tragedies of the first Christians and thereby provides a historical context for our NT. This study will examine the fate of the gospel message from its Jewish origins to Rome. Attention will be given to the role of Acts as part of the NT canon and its significance for contemporary Christians.
Prerequisite: BIBL 0501 Biblical Interpretation
