Reflection Questions
  • What were the barriers preventing the universal proclamation of the gospel in the first generation of believers in Jesus as the Christ? How were the barriers overcome? Explain why you agree or disagree with Russell that the resistance to include Gentiles should be called spiritual ethnocentrism.


  • Place Pentecost in its “salvation history” context, and explain its missionary significance.


  • Many of the readings recently have broached the topic of the Holy Spirit. Working with Peter’s encounter with Cornelius in Acts 10:1–11:18, outline a beginning theology of the Holy Spirit.
