Sunday Bible Study: Acts 2:42-47

Updated: May 4



On this Fourth Sunday of Easter, we explore the life changing themes of community fellowship, gratitude, and the joys of living a generous life of abundance.


Our Scripture passage is found in the Book of Acts, which is a continuation of the story of Jesus and his followers, as told by the author of the Gospel according to Luke. Our passage may be found by following the provided link: (Acts 2:42-47).


For continuing study on your own, reflect on these questions (found in the study guide below):

  • As you reflect on the community portrayed in the Scripture reading, consider the following: what was life like for this community, beyond their small group? What might have been their emotions in these early Christian days?

  • How is giving generously an expression of Christian unity and love?

  • We know these early Christians gathered at the Temple: why was the temple a natural meeting place for them; and why was it also a potentially dangerous place to gather?

  • We are told "their numbers increased daily" - why do you believe their numbers were increasing, and what part might the compassion and care displayed helped increase their numbers?

  • How were these early Christians "people of a new way?" And how might we also be a "people of a new way," especially in these turbulent days of 2020.
