Our Church has persevered in this LONG series entitled, "From Garden to Glory". It was/is an attempt to tell the whole story of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. It has been a desire on my part for several years; but I do admit, it's outside of my comfort zone in terms of teaching, and it is almost like remodeling: "It will take longer than you thought, and cost more than you hoped". We are in the Epistles right now...trying to understand the way in which the early church saw the unfolding revelation of God's redemption - which they had just seen up close in Jesus' life, death, resurrection and ascension. The book of Acts serves as a historical picture of what they went through. That is one reason I'm including the two videos of Acts at the end of this blog. What is absolutely clear in reading both Acts and the Epistles is that the GOSPEL of Jesus was, and therefore is, the message the Church proclaimed, and therefore must Proclaim today.
