This Jesus I am Proclaiming to You is the Christ

Acts 17:1-15 

Key verse 17:3 

“...explaining and proving that the Christ had to suffer and rise from the dead.  ‘This Jesus I am proclaiming to you is the Christ,’ he said.”

Read verses 1-2. Where did Paul and Silas go from Philippi? When they arrived there, where did they begin their ministry? How long were they there?

Read verses 2-4. What was the main point of Paul’s teaching? Why did the Christ have to suffer? (Isa 53:4,5; 10-12) Why did he have to rise from the dead? (Ro 1:4; 4:25) What did Paul proclaim? (Jn 1:29) What was the result?

Read verses 5-9. After an initial success, what happened? Why were the Jews jealous? Of what did they accuse the apostles? What does this tell us about gospel work? Who was Jason? What happened to him?

Read verses 10-15. Where did they go from Thessalonica? What does it mean that the Bereans were of more noble character? What was the result of the ministry there? What can we learn from them? What interference arose against the ministry there?
