    KOINONIA – “Fellowship” This word has made it into the English language for some very good reasons.  In an effort to form a just society the Greek philosophers wrestled with this word and its conceptual implications.  Much like our own debates between Socialism/Communism and Free Enterprise/Representative Republic Government, so also they hoped to find the perfect […]

    Bringing together Jews from all over the diaspora of the Roman Empire caused a huge swell to the city streets of Jerusalem during the time of The Passover and The Pentecost.  In addition, we know that all of the apostles were from Galilee; they were not residents of Jerusalem.  Likely many of the 120 that had […]

    This is the first in a series of blogs that will examine Acts 2:38-47.  This passage provides an important touchstone for our understanding of the Christ-centered, Holy Spirit empowered early church during the time immediately following the Day of Pentecost.  Keeping the passage in context with God’s overarching purpose, John Stott makes a significant observation: Of course […]

Devoted to “The Fellowship”

This week’s lesson continues the theme from the past few weeks, looking at how the First Century Church was devoted to “the fellowship” as they actively sought to be engaged in one another’s lives.

Devoted to the Apostles’ Teaching

Among the 3,000 Jews who became Christians on the Day of Pentecost, many were from distant regions of the Roman Empire.  Preparing to return home to their synagogues, families and occupations it is important for them to understand why they chose to follow Christ and how this has changed their lives for the better.  ‘Devoted to the apostles’ teaching’ meant understanding the prophecies of the Old Testament and their fulfillment in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ as well as His death, burial and resurrection.

The First Christians

Steve’s lesson this morning introduces God’s dream for the church, it’s realization on the Day of Pentecost (following Jesus’ death, burial, resurrection & ascension), and the priorities of the first Christians (as described in Acts 2:41-47).  In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, our own Restoration Movement strove to return to the simple patterns of that first church with hopes of drawing Christians together today.  Over the next seven weeks we will examine each of these traits to evaluate our own understandings in the light of God’s word.
