Week 4: Acts 9-11
In Acts 9, we begin an intentional shift towards the story of Paul and his life. This is not because Paul is the most important New Testament character, but because our author, Luke, as we will find out later spent years traveling with him and is an eye-witness to many of the things later in the book.
- Story Begins to shift toward Saul (Paul)
- Saul’s conversion
- Suffer for My name?
- Acts vs. Galatians accounts
