The Early Church was born into a culture full of religious and political corruption, moral depravity and violence, polytheistic spiritualism and idol worship, and prideful humanism. We often think our culture is beyond the reach of the gospel but the society in which Jesus came was, in many ways, much worse. History, as recorded in the book of Acts, shows us how the gospel thrived despite overwhelming challenges. In 1 Corinthians 11:1, the Apostle Paul said "Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ." Through his proclamation and defense of the truth of Jesus Christ, he "turned the world upside down." (Acts 17:6). His methods and message are relevant and can have the same impact today. In this study, we will focus on the historical context of a numbers of cities Paul visited on his mission journeys and glean from the Bible invaluable lessons for application in our lives today. The class format will be teaching-oriented along with open discussions. The purpose of this study will be threefold: (1) replicate the example of the Apostle Paul for making an evangelistic impact on our present culture (2) exercise our minds and hearts in preparation for responding to challenges to our faith (3) deepen our knowledge and appreciation for the Bible.
