Lesson 2:The Book of Conversions


The strategic placement of the book of acts in the n t

The Strategic Placement of the Book of Acts in the N.T.

  • It is a vital and indispensible record of God’s holy and Divine will for man.

  • In simplified summaries, the major divisions of the N.T. could be stated as follows:

    • The Gospels: God’s vehement intent to save man

    • Book of Acts: God’s vivid illustrations of men being saved

    • The Epistles: God’s various instructions to men who are saved

    • Revelation: God’s victorious incentive for men who are saved

Great Commission: Its Command, Compliance & Consequences

  • The Great Commission is simple, Jesus having used clear and precise terms.

  • However, some either by ignorance or by choice do not or will not “get it.”

  • God gave the book of Acts with clear and copious examples of the commission of Christ being followed.

    • Clear and precise instructions combined with clear, precise and copious examples (that correspond unambiguously with the instructions) makes God’s plan to save man crystal clear.

    • Any misunderstanding, misinterpretation, miscommunication or misapplication is therefore by conscious choice or willful ignorance.

Examples of Conversion in Acts

  • Those who were converted in the New Testament did:

    • Exactly what they were told to do

    • Immediately what they were told to do

    • Uniformly (in every case) what they were told to do

    • Graciously receive the same blessing of salvation

  • Men today must follow and use the conversions in Acts as their guide (see Lesson 1).
