Acts Bible Study

Summary

The Book of Acts depicts the shift from Jewish Christianity to Gentile Christianity as relatively smooth and portrays the Roman government as regarding the Christian doctrine as harmless. This book is the earliest “church history,” viewing the church as guided by the Spirit until a future Parousia (coming of the Lord). JournalOwl takes you through a 28-step journey of online Bible education, journaling, and reflection with built-in quizzes and polls. You can invite your friends and family too!
