Acts (2010)
Tuesday, September 18, 2012
by Robert Dean
Passage: Acts 9:1
Series: Acts (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 42 secs
The study of Saul’s conversion is more than academic. It becomes a study of our own times and how the Holy Spirit works today to totally redirect lives we have considered a lost cause. This revelation to Saul is repeated in scripture as an objective account of a historical event which was witnessed, and not just an imagined happening within Saul’s head. Saul uses his background as the catalyst in a severe acting out of passion directed against the gospel which may also mask an over-zealous but positive inclination toward God. Learn the significance of the bright light, Jesus’ introduction in terms of His humanity, Paul’s blindness, why Paul and Jesus spoke Hebrew instead of Aramaic, Paul’s conversation with Agrippa and Paul’s commission from God as apostle to the Gentiles.

Series: Philippians (2022)

What is your testimony? What can you tell others about your own spiritual journey that led you to faith in Christ? Listen to this message about Paul’s stellar background of how he was blameless as far as the Law was concerned. Hear a summary of the many divisions of Judaism during this period and what groups predominated in Paul’s day. Understand that even though Paul had much to brag about, he knew that all of it was worthless as far as God was concerned. Only faith in Christ is what saved him.

Series: Philippians (2022)

How did the many rituals and traditions of Judaism develop in the centuries prior to Jesus’ birth? Listen to this message to hear a detailed history of the period which included the Maccabean Revolt and the rise of the Herodian dynasties. See the key sects of the Scribes’, Pharisees’, and Sadducees’ origins and how this led to a belief that righteousness could be achieved by one’s own good deeds. Appreciate how Paul deftly debunks this belief.
