What happened to the nascent Church after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth? Join us for a week of study and discussion on episodes, in the original Greek, taken from the earliest church history of that time: the Acts of the Apostles.

This course is open to anyone of any ability in New Testament Greek, although please do note that we shall be studying and reading from the original Greek New Testament text. There will be no obligation to offer a translation, and grammar help will be given.

The selection will be available to download via PDF and a print-out will be provided for the week. The text used will be the Textus Receptus as prepared by F.H.A. Scrivener in the late 1800s, a print edition of which the Trinitarian Society Bible Society offer. A recommended lexicon is that of Abbott-Smith, which can be found in PDF format here.
