What might St. Paul have been doing in the five years between his dramatic conversion on the road to Damascus and his re-appearance in Antioch? What are the parallels between the Jewish and Gentile Pentecosts? What promise made to Noah did God fulfill in the vision of Peter?Hallmarks of the Church
In his two studies on the opening chapters of Acts, Stephen Ray uncovered many of the hallmarks of the Roman Catholic Church-- from Peter's authority as head of the Apostles and the essential role of bishops to the importance of evangelization and the need for an official interpreter of Scripture. Now, in the long anticipated third volume of Stephen Ray's continuing study on the Acts of the Apostles, you'll discover why Catholics must pay particular attention to the Book of Acts because of its importance in understanding the mission of the Church in the world
With his easy-going style, boundless enthusiasm, enjoyable sense of humor, and depth of knowledge, you'll hang on every word as this Baptist convert continues his in-depth study of the fascinating events that shaped the early Christian church.Cataclysmic Events
Taking up where Acts of the Apostles, Volume 2 left off, Steve begins with St. Peter's activities as told in the second half of Acts chapter 9. Moving on to two of the most significant episodes in Acts, he shares his considerable insights into to the cataclysmic events recounted in chapters 10 and 11: the conversion of Cornelius the Roman centurion and the vision of Peter.
Steve sets the scene by explaining the confusion that was prevalent in those early years of the church as the Jewish believers in Christ still tried to live out their Jewish faith in the synagogues. (Steve provides so much information about the time and place, history and geography that you'll want to listen again and again to catch every detail.)Historical Importance
The conversion of Cornelius the Gentile that follows is one of the most historically important chapters in the entire New Testament, and Steve goes into great detail as he explains why that is. With fascinating correlations to the Old Testament, Steve shows how Christ's message and mission is ultimately fulfilled in the conversion of the Gentiles, and how each and every one of us has become indeed one in the body of Christ. Reminding us of how grateful and special we should feel for being brought into that covenant, Steve explains the awesome gift we have been given-that we may now enter into the Holy of Holies to communicate with the Source of all grace.Pactical Experience
Steve Rayä¸»s life-long love for Scripture, his many years of experience as a Bible-study leader and his passion for the Catholic Faith combine to bring new life to Bible passages that you may have read many times. His knowledge of the customs of biblical times and peoples and the geography of the Holy Land make for fascinating lisening.
If you've already heard Acts of the Apostles, Volumes 1 and 2, you'll definitely want to continue this compelling study with Steve Ray. But even if you haven't heard the first two, you'll find listening to Acts of the Apostles, Volume 3 a rewarding and enriching experience, one that will inspire you to continue your study of the Bible and early Church history.
