Acts 26:11 explains that his zeal drove him to persecute the saints with this statement “__________________”.

Acts 9:5 would seem to indicate that Paul, despite the outward evidencing of zeal in his persecution of Christians, may have

that indicates this: “___________________________”.
it is hard for thee to kick out against the pricks (goad)?

teacher Gamaliel


Acts 9:3-6; 26-19; I Corinthians 9:1; 15:3-8 all seem to imply that as Paul heard the voice of Jesus speaking to him he

name of ____________________.

=====================
Week 5 (10.June.2010)
=====================

After his conversion and being filled with the Holy Ghost, the first recorded action of Paul, as he began his public ministry was that he: _________________________.
preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.


The relationship of Acts 9:3 with Galatians 1:17 would seem to be that the “many days” of the former are the same as the ____________ of which the latter speaks and, during which time as he says in Galatians 1:16, he ____________.
three years which he spent in Arabia / become that vessel through which God could “reveal His Son in me”


When Paul retreated to the Arabian Desert, where he conferred not with flesh and blood for the greater part of three years, our text book indicates that he learned three vital and important truths. Write each of these truths below and give a Scripture that is given in the textbook (Write out the Scripture) to support our belief in and acceptance of the truth.

The utter failure of man's own rightrousness.
Romans 10:1-8(KJV)
Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness,
have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things
shall live by them.
But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall
ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word
of faith, which we preach

The absolute and unchanging righteousness of God
Romans 1:17(KJV)
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The
just shall live by faith.

Romans 5:17-18
For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace
and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the
righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

The sinfulness of the Old Adam; the new nature of the New Adam.
Romans 7:14-25
For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing:
for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:


Paul, when he finally entered into his full time work for God, developed a method of approach to Gospel preaching and teaching, which first used at Damascus, he used for the greater portion of his ministry. Describe this method in detail: __________________.
Paul would first enter the synagogues to preach to not only the Jews but also to the God-fearing souls who were gathered there when first entering a city.


Also in the synagogue at Damascus Paul established the theme or main subject of all his future sermons and testimonies. The main subject of his message was _______________ that ______________________________ (Acts 9:20).
Christ / he is the Son of God


Having spent “many days” in the Arabian Desert, where he conferred with God directly about doctrinal teachings and truths, he now goes “up to Jerusalem” to confer with Peter. It is thought that he conferred with Peter that he might: _______________.
secure a historical background of Christ's life and ministry


Here at Jerusalem he also met _____________ for the first time, and this disciple of the Lord: (Acts 9:27) _____________”.
Peter / James


However, his stay at Jerusalem was cut short because of some fierce opposition that developed, even to the point of slaying him, and so the disciples (Acts 9:30) “_____________________”.
Which when the brethren knew, they brought him down to Caesarea, and sent him forth to Tarsus.

And, here at Tarsus, Paul spent the next six of seven years in semi-retirement. This period of time is commonly known as: “________”.
the silent years at Tarsus


While Paul was in semi-retirement here at Tarsus, God was using the Apostle to: ____________________ so that, during the time of Paul in Tarsus, there took place within the early Church: ______________ wherein the Gentiles were _____________ in the Church of Jesus Christ.

Also during this time of Paul’s semi-retirement the Syrian city of ____________ was caused to become ___________________.

And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.

======================
Week 10 (13.July.2010)
======================

As underlined in the text, the important stops on the first missionary journey were as follows:
First - Salamis and Paphos in Cyprus, Perga, Antioch in Pisida, Iconium, Lystra and Derbe in Lycaonia, Derbe.


On this first missionary journey the missionary party was made up of:
Barnabas from Cyprus, Saul from Cilicia, Simeon from Ethiopia, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen.


In not more than 50 words give the incident that occurred at Paphos and which incident dates the time of Paul taking over leadership of the missionary party.
Elymas the sorcerer (some text "magician", others "Jewish false prophet") opposed Paul and the word of God he was preaching. Paul, while filled with the Holy Spirit, did name Elymas a child of the devil and Elymas was struck blind by God. This astonished Paulus the proconsul and confirmed his belief in the Lord.


Acts 13:13 reads: “When Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia:
(NIV)Now Paul and his companions set sail from Paphos and came to Perga in Pamphylia. And John left them and returned to Jerusalem, but they went on from Perga and came to Antioch in Pisidia. And on the Sabbath day they went into the synagogue and sat down.
(KJV)Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia: and John departing from them returned to Jerusalem. But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and sat down.


Acts 13:14-41 indicates that while Paul and his company were in Antioch in Pisidia that his sermon revolved around the subject of:
Justification by Faith

This sermon contained five main points, name them:
That Jesus is assuredly raised from the dead. That Jesus is truly the only begotten Son of God. That Jesus is the long-hoped for Messiah is positively and undeniably proven by His resurrection. That "therefore, men and brethern.. through this Man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins." That "by Him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the Law of Moses."


Give the verse is Isaiah which was fulfilled in Paul’s statement which he made after his sermon was rejected by the Jews at Antioch in Pisidia, and which statement was “we turn to the Gentiles”.
(Not sure I tanslated this question correctly - so here are both passages.)
Acts (13:46-KJV) Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
Isaiah (49:6-KJV) And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.


Finish the sentence in the textbook which begins: “Paul never veered from the truth that the Jews ___"
...possessed the right and privilege to the first hearing, but under no circumstance would he shut the “Gospel door” to the Gentiles when the Jews turned from God.



And thought these missionaries almost without exception had severe trials and persecutions in every city, what is written of them in Acts 13:52?
And the disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost.


And Acts 14:3 informs us that: ______________________________.
Acts (14:3-KJV) Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.


What healing miracle, performed by Paul in Lystra, was similar to one performed by Peter and John at the Temple gate?
Acts (14:8-10-KJV) And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.


It was also at the City of Lystra that the people thought Paul and Barnabas were some sort of gods come down from heaven: They thought Paul was __________ because he was _____. Barnabas was ____________.
