Text: The Bible / Outline and Workbook from the Legacy Bible Outline Series by Harvestime International Institute
Course Description: Imagine what it would be like if the Book of Acts were missing.  You would pick up your Bible and see the ministry of Jesus ending in the Gospel of John; next you would read about a guy named Paul writing to followers of Jesus in Rome.  Who was Paul?  How did the gospel get from Jerusalem to Rome?  The Book of Acts answers these questions. "A great New Testament scholar has said that the title of Acts might be, 'How they brought the Good News from Jerusalem to Rome.'" (Barclay)
