Reflection Questions
  • Study the use of the Greek words pneuma and ethnos in the LXX concordance and the New Testament Greek concordance. What confusion is likely for English speakers when they deal with these two words?

  • The episode in Acts 12 when Peter is left standing at the gate is regarded by some as at once the most hilarious and the severest criticism of human believers to be found in the Bible. How do you account for such an appraisal?

  • In what ways is the following statement both true and not true: “Acts 3–12 portrays the first time the gospel ever penetrated the Gentile world”?
