Go and Make Disciples

Sermon notes 9/12/10

Acts 17:1-18:23

  1. Thessalonica and Berea – a contrasted response – Acts 17:1-15
    1. Jews – more converts in Berea
      1. Those who study the Scriptures
      2. John 5:37-40
    2. Background information from 1 and 2 Thessalonians
      1. 1 Thessalonians 2:2-4; 13-20
      2. 1 Thessalonians 3:1-5 – to Athens
  2. Contextualizing the Gospel with the wisdom of the world
    1. Paul and the Greek philosophers – Acts 17:16-34
    2. Using the wisdom of this world fails
      1. Babbler – an insult of Paul’s use of philosophy
      2. A sound foundation – God the Creator (Romans 1:18-23)
      3. Using philosophy falls short
      4. Unable to bridge the gap – 1 Corinthians 1:17-25
  3. Making tents and disciples in Corinth – Acts 18:1-23
    1. The false charge – Acts 18:13; (Acts 21:20-21; 24)
      1. Paul doesn’t get to defend himself here; see Acts 25:8
      2. Sosthenes – 1 Corinthians 1:1
    2. Paul’s vow – Acts 18:18-23
      1. Probably a Nazirite vow – see Acts 21:23-24
