To The Jew First, and then to the Gentile

A Study of the Book of Acts

What does all this stuff about a Jewish Messiah have to do with 21st Century Americans? How did the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth come to affect the world in such a way? From January 21st, 2018 to December 29th, 2019, we made an in depth study of the book of Acts. From Jerusalem to Rome, this book explains how the Gospel of Jesus spread from it's Jewish beginnings to spread throughout the Roman Empire.
