In the Steps of the Apostle Paul

The message of salvation Paul carried to Europe 2,000 years ago can give us new hope for the future.

About A.D. 50 a spiritual crusade began in Greece that dramatically changed the tide of history. The apostle Paul landed on the European continent, armed with the gospel message given him by Jesus Christ. This project was so important in God’s purpose that he miraculously led Paul to Europe to teach the message of salvation, beginning in Macedonian Greece.

Preaching in the Book of Acts Part 2: Paul

In Acts 11, Luke tells us about some developments in Antioch in Syria. Greek-speaking Jews had been telling Gentiles “the good news about the Lord Jesus.” Many Gentiles believed and repented (11:20-21). This was “evidence of the grace of God” (11:23). Through the work of Barnabas and Saul, many people “were brought to the Lord” (11:24). These phrases are descriptive of what the gospel of Jesus Christ does. The believers in Antioch talked about the Messiah Christos so much that they became known as the Christianoi (11:26).

The Acts of the Apostles

sailing ship. Artwork by Ken TunellThis book is commonly called "The Acts of the Apostles," but it does not discuss most of the apostles - it focuses only on Peter, and then Paul. The book describes the spread of Christianity from its origins with Jews in Jerusalem, to eventually include all peoples, even in the capital city of the Roman Empire. The story is filled with drama, miracles, and speeches about the risen Christ.
