Sunday Bible Study: Acts 2:14, 22-32
Updated: Apr 21, 2020
On this Second Sunday of Easter, we explore the meaning of Christ's resurrection in our world and how the act of God's redeeming and restoring love re-orders our world and our lives.
Our Scripture passage is found in the narrative of Acts of the Apostles, which may be found by following the provided link: (Acts 2:14, 22-32).
For continuing study on your own, reflect on these questions (found in the study guide below): After reading the assigned Scripture and the Apostles' Creed - what similarities do you discover and what meaning do they have for you?; read from the study sheet, "WHAT is important..." and "SO WHAT does this mean..." and reflect on how the giving of the Holy Spirit has similar meaning to God's giving of the LAW, and differences...and how do you understand these similarities and differences in your life?; Peter says to the crowd that "you crucified" Jesus...how has this part of Scripture been interpreted throughout the centuries and how has its interpretation led to horrible consequences?; read "NOW WHAT is God's word calling..." and reflect on the impact of our lives as we consider that "hierarchies have no meaning" and that we are all equal in the eyes of God...how was this aspect of Jesus' mission and ministry threatening for some, while liberating to others?
Below you will find the study guide for your own review and reflection. Additionally, The Apostles Creed is provided for study in comparison to our Scripture reading:
