Dr. Darrell Bock, one of the world’s foremost biblical scholars, has distilled his decades of research and teaching experience into this single course on how to study the Bible with Logos. This is the ideal companion to your Logos base package.

Delve into our world that is full of cultures and distinct settings and examine the cross-cultural realities and the pluralism that we all live with as human beings.

NT217 Key Events and Speeches in Acts

  • Instructor: Darrell Bock
  • Publication Date: 2015
  • Video Hours: 4

Explore the book of Acts in depth with Dr. Darrell L. Bock, who is internationally recognized for his scholarship in Luke-Acts. You will hear Dr. Bock’s commentary on key speeches and significant events such as Pentecost, the expansion of the gospel to the Gentiles, and the Jerusalem council that decided how Jews and Gentiles would function as one body. You will learn how Luke’s writings are the “glue” that coheres the New Testament, and how these works explain the way the Old Testament fits into the New.

“Luke-Acts is fundamentally about legitimization,” says Dr. Bock. “Even though Christianity seems to be new, it actually is the realization of promises that go back all the way to Abraham, all the way to Moses. It’s been around a long time. It’s the completion of Jewish hope. That legitimizes the early church.”
