- Speaker: Bryant Brailles
- Summary: Beginning a series on the introductory chapters of the book of Acts. Acts is widely understood as a follow-up to the gospel of Luke, and written by the same author. Verse 8 is what many consider the thesis statement of the book, how the gospel spread within the city where it started, then to the land of historical Israel, then to the Roman Empire.
- Passage: Acts 1:1-11
