In Paul’s intimate address to the Ephesian elders, we find the only moment in Acts where he addresses Christians. He does so with vulnerability, discipleship, and concern. In this address we learn the secret of his strength: he does not get in the way of God’s grace or His Spirit, because he has no concern for self. There’s no limit to what one can…
 
As Paul and Priscilla and Aquila travel past Ephesus, they encounter both Apollos and some disciples of John of Baptist. Interestingly, both Apollos and John’s followers share a misconception about the baptism instituted by Jesus. This study of humility, courage, and even doctrine considers what it means to explain the way of God more adequately. A…
 
As Paul enters Roman colonies on his second missionary journey, he begins to expand on the message of Grace. These colonies already knew of a societal Grace; it was the fabric that maintained connections and loyalties in the colonies. A clear understanding of Grace will help us marvel at the Gospel that changed both Paul and his hearers. Acts 15:36…
 
Pharisees entered the Church and looked to impose their sensibility on the Gospel message. The church and the Holy Spirit successfully delivered the Gospel from the potential limits of performance based religion. This was a major turning point for the early Church. It’s a major turning in our understanding of how we can live out Christianity withou…
 
The Holy Spirit launches the first missionary journey for Paul and Barnabas from Antioch into Cyprus. The church now becomes proactive and deliberate about reaching the world for Jesus. Despite opposition from a gospel perverter, Paul through the Spirit brings the proconsul to faith.Di Edward Anton
 
What about James? What about the prayers of the saints for James? Is God not sovereign over suffering? Indeed He is, but He is also a Sovereign who underwent suffering. Walking With God Through Pain and Suffering informs some insights for the midweek lesson at Hampton Roads Church. Acts 12:1-8, 1Corinthians 15:54-56, Galatians 3:27…
 
The Church prays earnestly for James and Peter, but James is executed while Peter is miraculously released. How does one reconcile the difference? Why didn't the disciples believe their own prayers when Peter was released? Why do we pray? And what about James?Di Tim Rees
 
After the baptism of Cornelius, the Jewish Christians interrogate Peter for including "the nations" or the Gentiles in the New Covenant with Yahweh. This is a much bigger paradigm explosion than we can at first appreciate. This study looks at the first century Jewish worldview with a particular focus on the God and His Divine Council as well the Na…
 
After Stephen's stoning scatters the believers, they first encounter Samaritans who receive the Gospel of Jesus. An excursus on the Holy Spirit referenced these Scriptures: John 7:38-39, John 3:3-5, Titus 3:5, Acts 2:38, Judges 15:14, 1Chronicles 12:18, Ezekiel 11:5, Psalm 51:11, 1Samuel 19:23-24Di Edward Anton
 
From busboy to courageous catalyst for world missions, Stephen preaches a brilliant and bold sermon in crucible of contention, that is, the Sanhedrin. While Stephen reminds the Sanhedrin that they are "Just Like Your Fathers", he is unmistakably "Just Like Your Jesus."Di Edward Anton
 
We need a hero. Peter preached about our Hero and Savior, Jesus Christ. The Sanhedrin speculated about self-proclaimed yet failed Heroes, including Theudas and later Judas the Galilean. Our Hero has not failed us. Our Hero cannot fail. Thus, in Him we cannot fail.Di Edward Anton
 
While Barnabas provides a beautiful example of a believer on whom was "great grace", Ananias and Sapphira contrast his Authenticity of Great Grace with the Duplicity of Dys-grace. Authenticity vs Duplicity; Generosity vs Complicity.Di Edward Anton
 
One of the most controversial aspects of Christianity is its exclusive claim that there is no other way to God except through Jesus. How will Peter, who had recently shrunk back in cowardice, handle this difficult doctrine in front of all the most intimidating men in Jerusalem?Di Edward Anton
 
The fledgling church famously devoted themselves to the Apostles's teachings, to the fellowship, the breaking of bread and to prayer, as they celebrated many wonders and attesting signs performed by the apostles. One of those wonders is specified with the healing of the man born lame who rises to leap like a deer in praise of Jesus the Messiah. Thi…
 
The first sermon of the Church inaugurated and constituted an approach that guided the disciples throughout much of the Book of Acts. The sermon emphasized Jesus, His death, His resurrection, His ascendency, His gift of the Spirit, His gift of Life.Di Edward Anton
 
Pentecost meant so many things to the Jews. Here in Acts 2, the feast is co-opted by the Spirit to celebrate the clarity and security of Grace. Jesus offers a double cure: freedom from slavery to sin (repentance) and freedom from guilt & punishment of sin (forgiveness). Moreover, we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and fellowship. This sermon ta…
 
Despite the empowering indwelling of the Holy Spirit, we allow inhibiters to limit the work of God through us. Fear of failure, lack of short term results, distractions, personal failings, and insecurity/pride all restrain the unlimited power of the Spirit in us. Acts 2:1-13, 1Corinthians 14:6-25, John 16:7-8, Ephesians 4:4-6, Ephesians 2:8-10, Eph…
 
The eleven Apostles who gathered at Jesus' ascension are mentioned by name by Luke as they pray together before launching Jesus' world mission. We know a lot about Paul, but whatever happened to Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James (son of Alphaeus), Simon (the Zealot), Judas (son of James), Judas (Iscariot), and …
