Module Description

The focus will be on two stories in the Acts: the long account of the conversion of Cornelius (Acts 10:1-11:18) and the so-called Council of Jerusalem (Acts 15:1-41; to be read in conjunction with Galatians). The crisis centred on how much of the past to hold on to in light of the Easter and Pentecost events. For us today, Acts 15 is highly instructive: reading the signs of the times, attending to the work of the Spirit, searching the Scriptures, taking account of the Christ event and, finally, compromising. A road map for a synod.
