Overview

The Studies in Acts Bundle develops your understanding of Acts with the help of today’s foremost scholars of this important book. Dr. Craig Keener begins by laying the groundwork, focusing on the genre and historical elements, and then Dr. Darrell Bock takes you chapter by chapter through the key speeches and events. Dr. Lynn Cohick examines both Acts and Paul’s letters to paint a vivid picture of who Paul of Tarsus was, what he did, and what he believed.

If you want to learn more about how first-century Christians defended their faith, functioned as a body, and began to spread the good news to all people, these courses will take you there.

Individual Courses

NT216 Introductory Issues in Acts

  • Instructor: Craig S. Keener
  • Video hours: 2

Dr. Craig Keener, award-winning scholar and author of one of the largest and most thoroughly documented Acts commentaries available, provides students with an introduction to the book of Acts which focuses on such fundamentals as genre and historical context. He also explores key themes including mission, ethnic reconciliation, and evangelism, and discusses the Spirit’s power to bring these about.

Dr. Craig S. Keener is professor of New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary, and is the author of 17 books, four of which have won Christianity Today book awards. One, IVP Bible Background Commentary: New Testament, has sold more than half a million copies. He has authored scholarly commentaries on Matthew, John (two volumes), Acts (four volumes), and more briefly on Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, and Revelation.

NT217 Key Events and Speeches in Acts

  • Instructor: Darrell L. Bock
  • Video hours: 4

Explore the book of Acts in depth with Dr. Darrell 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.”

Contents:

  • Common Themes in Luke-Acts
  • The Church Begins
  • The Church Spreads
  • Paul the Missionary
  • Paul the Prisoner

Dr. Darrell L. Bock, research professor of New Testament studies and professor of spiritual development and culture at Dallas Theological Seminary, serves as editor-at-large for Christianity Today, and is on the board of Chosen People Ministries and Wheaton College. From 2000 to 2001, Dr. Bock served as president of the Evangelical Theological Society.

He has earned international recognition as a Humboldt Scholar for his work in Luke-Acts, historical Jesus study, biblical theology, as well as with messianic Jewish ministries. He has published articles in the Los Angeles Times and The Dallas Morning News and is a well-known author of over 30 books. His publications include Studying the Historical Jesus: A Guide to Sources and Methods, Jesus according to Scripture, an NIV Application Commentary on Luke, Breaking the Da Vinci Code, and commentaries on Acts and Luke in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (BECNT) series.

NT231 Paul of Tarsus

  • Instructor: Lynn H. Cohick
  • Video hours: 5

Who was Paul of Tarsus? In this course, Dr. Lynn Cohick draws from the book of Acts as well as Paul’s letters to paint a vivid picture of who he was, what he did, and what he believed. “We want to take a look both at Acts and at Paul’s letters because we want to make sure that we understand Paul not simply as someone who thinks about theology, sits at a desk and writes letters, but also as someone who is doing, who is living out what they claim.”

Dr. Cohick begins with Luke’s perspective in Acts, and draws attention to Paul’s desires and actions and the major events in his life. Then, using Acts as a narrative framework, she looks at Paul’s own writings to reveal more about his personal thoughts and fears. If you want a guided tour through the life and teachings of one of the most influential figures in the Christian church, this is it.

Contents:

  • Paul’s Background
  • Paul the Apostle
  • Paul’s Travels
  • Paul’s Epistles

Dr. Lynn H. Cohick is professor of New Testament at Wheaton College. Dr. Cohick’s special interests include women in the ancient world, the ways that Jews and Christians lived out their faith in the Graeco-Roman world, and building understanding between Jews and Christians today. She has written commentaries on Ephesians and Galatians, Women in the World of the Earliest Christians and coauthored The New Testament in Antiquity.
