9/25/2020 SPM616 Acts 18:23-19:41 "Unusual miracles." For two years Paul taught in the school of Tyranus, and "all who dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus." The power and authority of the word of God preached by Paul was further confirmed through miraculous works at Ephesus.

9/21/2020 SPM614 Acts 17:5-34 God is not far. Paul preached the gospel to the Athenians on Mars Hill in a way they could understand, but he did not change the message. The good news of the gospel does not need our help to be more palatable for the culture we live in.
9/18/2020 SPM614 Acts 17:5-34 The Unknown God. Paul was burdened for the people in Athens, wrapped up in idolatry. Are we burdened for the lost world around us? Paul was given an opportunity to preach the gospel before the foremost thinkers and philosophers of Athens at Mars Hill.
9/17/2020 SPM614 Acts 17:5-34 Search the scriptures. The Bereans were more noble than those in Thessalonica because they searched the scriptures to see if the things Paul and Silas preached were true. Paul fled for his life to Athens, a city "full of idols."
