Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom with Jeff Cavins
Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30 St. Charles Church Begins October 5, 2017
Step Three in The Great Adventure Bible Study Program, Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom, builds on The Bible Timeline and Matthew by showing how Christ's Kingdom on earth is empowered to carry out his work in the world. The book of Acts shows the Church, enlivened by the Holy Spirit, teaching, preaching, healing, and restoring outcasts in the same way that Jesus did on earth.
The Acts of the Apostles provides an historic framework for understanding the rest of the New Testament. Paul’s letters in particular come alive in a new way when they are read within the context of the Acts narrative.
While this is part three in the series, all are welcome to take part in this course, even if you missed parts one and two.
There is no cost if you return your study guide in perfect condition. If you'd like to keep your study guide, the cost is $30. You'll also need a Bible and Cathecism, and a notebook or paper. Study guides will be provided at the first session.
Congrats to the folks who completed the Gospel of Matthew bible study!

We'll begin a series on The Acts of the Apostles in September. More information will be available as the fall approaches.
We will be using the the series Matthew: The King and His Kingdom by Jeff Cavins. This is an excellent 24 week video series with an accompanying workbook. Each night, we'll watch that week's video presentation and follow it with a discussion guided by the workbook. Each video is roughly an hour long. There is no cost for the course. If you prefer to keep or write in your workbook, they can be purchased for $30. If not, simply return it at the end of the course for no cost.
If you're not able to make it every week, that's not a problem. Simply come when you can. We'd love to have you. You can let us know you're coming below, or you can simply show up.
Matthew: The King and His Kingdom with Jeff Cavins
Matthew: The King and His Kingdom is an exciting study that explores the life and mission of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel. Matthew demonstrates how the promises and prophecies of the Old Testament are fulfilled in Christ, who establishes a New Law and inaugurates the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. Participants will see Jesus as the awaited Messiah who relives the life and struggles of Israel to become the faithful and victorious King. Set in the rich context of Jesus' Jewish culture, this study will help participants understand who Jesus is and what his life and teachings mean for us today.
Your Group Will:
See Jesus as the Son of David, the Son of Abraham, the New Moses, the True Manna, the New Temple—and learn what this means for us today.
Learn how Jesus reconstituted the struggling kingdom of Israel around Himself and opened the Kingdom of God to all people.
Witness how Christ established his Church with the Twelve Apostles, and Peter as his vicar.
Discover the roots of the sacraments, and see how Jesus' words and actions are reflected in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Watch Jesus re-live the history of Israel as the obedient Son who trusts the Father, defeats hell and the grave, and rises to new life.
