Kent Philpott's Bible Study Sermons

Nov 28, 2017

That next Sabbath Day (Saturday morning about 9am) a large crowd gathers to hear the apostles, although opposition arose during the week, out of Jealousy Luke tells us. They present the message with boldness despite the dangers. This now prepares the way for the Gospel message to be preached to Gentiles, predicted in Isaiah 49:6. Paul always went to his Jewish brethren first then to the Gentiles, as we see in Romans 1:16. On hearing the gospel the Gentiles rejoice and “as many as were appointed to eternal life believed.” More and more then hear the Gospel message around that region, which provokes more opposition. Still, the new believers are filled with “joy and the Holy Spirit.”
