“I could not really love the Church in a rightly ordered way until I learned to love Christ above all.” —Rod Dreher
Acts is the story of convincing people that Jesus is the #Christ, the promised one of God. Just in chap. 18, Paul attempted to persuade Jews and Greeks, v. 4. He testified that Jesus was the Christ, v. 5. Opponents understood the gospel was #persuasion, v. 13. Apollos demonstrated from the scriptures that the Christ was Jesus, v. 28. All of #Acts shows this emphasis.
