Acts Part 1 - Jesus' Witnesses Empowered by His Spirit (chapters 1-12) (8 lessons) - Video Lecture Set on DVD (Kay Arthur) - Luke’s first account was his Gospel in which he recorded all that Jesus began to do and teach. His second account we call Acts, or the Acts of the Apostles, in which Luke recorded what happened after Jesus’ ascension to the Father. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit, empowering the apostles to testify to the power of God in salvation and in living every day for the gospel.
Learn how God spread the gospel through witnesses of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and from their examples, how you too can witness to others. Stand in awe of the power of God in believers to endure persecution and suffering for the cause of Christ and embrace His power in your life. Be encouraged by the results of faithful servants holding forth truth in a dark world; watch as the church grows numerically, geographically, and culturally. (runtime approx. 60:00 video DVD programs, but lengths vary so see individual DVDs for length.) (8 DVDs, one lesson per DVD.) Cut: 2014; Edited: 2014
