Acts of the Apostles, with Fr Barnabas

I am continuing my class on the book of acts staring August 30th. Do not worry if you missed the first part of the class. The first part of the class was focused primarily on the historical context in which the book of acts was written, which will be revisited as we go through the book of acts. In this class we will look at the world Christians found themselves in during the Church’s first century I will focus primarily on what life was like for the earliest Christians in Rome. In the class we will dive into a number of interesting questions such as; Why did the Emperor Claudius expel the Christians from Rome? Why doesn’t Luke in his book of Acts not tell us anything about the death of St. Paul, but simply ends the book of Acts with Paul in prison?


The primary text for the class will be
