Bible Reading Coach, Week 45 (Acts 1-24) The Early Church

What happens when a group of ordinary Jesus-followers start operating under the power of the Holy Spirit? They turn the world upside-down.

What a week of reading we have!

Over the next several days we’ll see what happened in the very early days and years of a brand-new thing called “the church.”

We’ll also read about

  • The start of Christian persecution
  • How quickly the gospel spread
  • How new believers taught each other to follow Jesus
  • How they cared for each other
  • Their excitement about sharing their newfound faith

This week, we’ll even see the word “Christian” for the first time in the Bible, and we’ll see where that term came from.

The Bible Reading Coach podcast is designed to help anyone read through the Bible in a year. In 10-15 minutes each Friday, I’ll introduce you to the passage for the following week, including:

  • What it’s about
  • How to deal with challenging passages
  • How the original readers saw it
  • How it applies today
  • And much more

After listening, take the next week to read the passage on your own. This time you’ll have a clearer understanding of it.
