Acts

$150

with Larry Hovey

Calendar Apr 30, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 6 weeks

BIB212 - Acts presents a true historical record of the development of the early church in the middle of the first century A.D. Luke’s descriptions of geographical and provincial details, of governmental officials and their official actions, of actions of emperor’s and of the sea voyage to Italy with its accurate use of nautical terms. These all point to a careful researcher who himself was an eyewitness to many of the events recorded in Acts 16 and the succeeding chapters. Students will study and discuss four to five chapters in Acts per week over the six-week course with two hours class time per week. Students will complete a quiz each week, write three five- paragraph essays, complete an in-class mid-term test, and write a final term paper.
