biblestudy: Acts (Part Twelve)
Acts 11-13 Relationship Between Prayer and God's Response
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 06-Dec-88; Sermon #BS-AC12; 80 minutes
Paul and Barnabas developed the church in the cosmopolitan city of Antioch, the location from where the term 'Christian' originated. The twelfth chapter, an apparent flashback, focuses upon the execution of James (at the hands of mad Herod Agrippa), Peter's miraculous escape from prison followed by the dramatic death of Herod as a result of blasphemy, an episode showing the relationship between prayer and God's response. The episode also had the effect of driving Peter from Jerusalem. Chapter 13 begins a concentrated effort on the part of the Antioch church to carry the Gospel to the Gentiles through the efforts of Barnabas and Saul.
