2-20-2022  Acts 15:8-39 The Jerusalem Council

Notes:Show from last week.

2-13-2022   Acts 15:8-39 The Jerusalem Council

Notes: In Antioch, Certain men came down from Judea and taught the brethren, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved. Paul and Barnabas tried to persuade the men from Judea about their error but could not resolve it so the Church in Antioch sent Paul, Barnabas and others to the Church in Jerusalem. Here, Paul and Barnabas found plenty of other Christians in Jerusalem who rejoiced at what God was doing among the Gentiles.

2-06-2022:  Mark 8

Notes: This is a re-broadcast from Oct 04, 2020. It opens with a recap of the week before (Sep 27, 2020) because of a radio broadcast issue with that show.

Mark 8 is a pivotal point in the ministry of Jesus. Up until now Jesus has been training his disciples, publicly disagreeing with religious leaders (Pharisees), and performing healing miracles that the Old Testament associates with the Messiah. In chapters 9 and 10 Jesus will again warn them of His impending sacrifice.

In Mark 8, Jesus and the disciples return by boat to the west coast of the Sea of Galilee. Here the Pharisees continue their attack and demand that Jesus provide a sign that his authority comes from God and not Satan. They want something that unquestionably proves He is the Messiah. In Mark's account, Jesus leaves them with nothing, but in the parrallel account in Matthew, Jesus tells them they haven't read the signs they've already received, and they won't get another except one related to Jonah (Matthew 16:1–4).

Jesus takes His disciples back to the boat and tries to explain to the disciples that the beliefs of the Pharisees and Herod's followers are like tiny bits of leaven that, if they're not careful, will permeate their belief systems, as a little yeast makes a whole loaf of bread rise. The disciples completely miss the point and translate His warning into frustration that they have forgotten to bring more than one loaf of bread. Jesus reminds them that He is more than capable of turning a single loaf of bread into a meal for all of them.

Month of January 2022

1-30-2022  Acts 14:20 - 15:8

Notes: Last weeks show again due to broadcast difficulties.

paul's first journey
1-23-2022  Acts 14:20 - 15:8

Notes: Derbe was the easternmost church established on the mission of Paul and Barnabas. Had the two chosen to do so, they could have continued southeast from Derbe on through the Cilician gates the 150 miles or so to Paul’s hometown of Tarsus and from there back to Syrian Antioch. It would have been the easiest route home by far. They chose, however, to retrace their footsteps and revisit all the congregations that had been established in the course of the mission. - John B. Polhill

In a time when most of the population didn’t read or write, the establishment of an oral tradition required repetition. It was critical for God’s Words to be remembered and retold precisely. In the same way that the Hebrews committed the Tora to memory the Gentiles must commit the laws and guidance of Jesus to memory. Everyone’s salvation depends on getting it exactly right.

As Paul and Barnabas swept through these cities picking up disciples on the first pass, it was important to immediately retrace these areas and establish an order to these young churches. Paul and Barabus appointed elders in each Church. It was in the Lystra that Paul converted Timothy. The scriptures tell us that Timothy was a fellow worker with Paul (Romans 16:21). He was the companion of his labors in the Second and Third Missionary Journeys at least as far as Troas (Acts 20:4, 5).

From Lystra they preached retracing their steps back to Antioch stopping at Iconium, Pisidia, Pamphylia, Perga, and Attalia. Acts 14 closes with Paul and Barnabas among the believers in Antioch. God had opened “A door of faith for the Gentiles,” and Paul and Barnabas share this news with the Church in Antioch. All is well.

Acts 15 opens with the news that “certain individuals” from Judea arrived in Antioch. These teachers say that Gentile members of the church must be circumcised (and presumably also observe the rest of the Law) in order to be saved. This directive inspired “no small dissension and debate” (15:2) in Antioch. When no consensus emerged, the Church sent Paul, Barnabas, and some of the others to consult with the Church leaders in Jerusalem.

1-16-2022  Mark 6


1-09-2022   Acts 14-15

Notes: Paul and Barnabas convince a number of Jews and Gentiles to believe in the gospel message, but the city is divided. Some Jews make a plan to stone them, but the plan is discovered and they leave the city for Lystra and Derbe. At Lystra a crippled man listens intently to Paul and seeing his faith, commands him to stand up. The man is miraculously healed and the people of Lystra decide that Paul and Barnabas are the gods Hermes and Zeus in human form.

The local priest of Zeus prepares oxen for a sacrifice to the two gods in their midst. Paul and Barnabas cry out to the crowd that they are mortal humans, not gods. Paul then performs his first recorded sermon to Gentiles. Since the audience was not Jewish, Paul's sermon talked about there being only one God and how he has created the natural enviornment around them.

“Friends, why are you doing this? We too are only human, like you. We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in them. In the past, he let all nations go their own way. Yet he has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy.”
