Paul and Barnabas Week \ Week 39 summary posted

Derbe is southeast of Lystra some thirty miles, in modern Turkey. In the Lycaonian District, this town was at the extreme edge of cities considered “Galatian”. The town was small, but the work of Paul and Barnabas yielded a number of followers. Among them, Gaius was converted and much later joined Paul’s team on the Third Missionary Journey.

Last week, in just five chapters of the book of Acts, we saw so much growth and movement in the Lord’s church.  Now things are starting to happen quickly; and this week will be no different.  By the time we end chapter 11, more than a decade will have passed since Saul was converted.  We’ll see more integration of Gentiles into Christianity –  Apostles arrested, stoned and even killed.  Then we will end the week with what will come to be known as the Jerusalem conference.

Summing Up

Each weekend, I am now posting a small PDF of one week of chapter summaries (on the website’s “Summaries” page), current to the beginning of the previous week.  I have posted the summary for Week 39 September Week 4) of the schedule I am following.  This short PDF document contains condensed comments about Matthew 27, 28, John 20, 21, and Luke 24, with hyperlinks to the ESV version of each chapter for listening or reading, and joins the summaries for other weeks already posted there.
