NT263-SPL : ‘So the Word of God Grew Mightily’: Gospel Expansion in Acts (1.5 Credit)
Academic Year : all year round
About this course
Acts is Luke’s second volume. It recounts the expansion of the gospel and finishes with Paul in Rome awaiting trial following his appeal as a Roman citizen to the emperor, Nero. Most Christians do not have a comprehensive understanding of Acts, which Luke himself divides into 5 sections. At the end of each section he pauses to recount how the Word of Lord is growing and is unstoppable.
This course aims to help students understand not only the Book of Acts in its 1st century setting, but also its overall message and relevance for contemporary discipleship in Singapore.
