Studies in Acts

Click to see sample lesson

Written by Luke, Acts is the continuation of his gospel narrative. In Acts we find a three-fold theme. First, it is the history of the work of the Holy Spirit. It is the fulfillment of Christ’s promise that he would pour out his Spirit on his people. Second, Acts sets forth the doctrine of the church, which in its simplicity is the model for the organization and operation of the Spirit-led church of all ages. Third, Acts is evangelistic, recording the spread of the gospel through the preaching of the word of Christ.

Thus Acts is a paradigm for the New Testament church throughout its history.

The question format of this study guide is intended to provoke study, discussion, and thought, in order to facilitate an understanding of Acts, whether in Bible studies or on a personal level.

This guide is split into 28 chapters, with each chapter corresponding to a chapter in Acts. Each chapter is made up of 3-5 sections that can be used as "lessons" for personal or group study.

 

Mark Homer Hoeksema (1949-2021) was the son of a Protestant Reformed minister. He had a great love for church history, facilitating and recording many dozens of interviews and profiles with men and women in the Reformed church tradition. Many of these can be found in the archives of the Standard Bearer and the Beacon Lights, a publication for Reformed young people of which he was editor-in-chief for some years. He also wrote numerous Bible study guides for the RFPA.

Corrupting the Word of God: The History of the Well-meant offer

Level Member Price $2.99

$19.95

 Click to look inside

Does the eternal, unchangeable, all-powerful, and sovereign God really have a temporal, changeable and weak desire to save those whom he has unconditionally reprobated (Rom. 9:22), for whom the Son did not die (John 12:31) and whom the Holy Spirit will not regenerate, sanctify or glorify (John 3:8)?

Pelagianism, semi-Pelagianism, Roman Catholicism, Lutheranism, Anabaptism, Arminianism, Amyraldism, and Marrowism say yes to the well-meant offer of the gospel. The biblical, Augustinian, Reformed, and creedal position is no!

Emeritus professor of church history Herman Hanko guides us through fascinating doctrinal controversies in the early, Reformation, and modern eras of the church, taking us to North Africa, Switzerland, France, England, Scotland, the Netherlands, and America, and emphasizing the teaching of the great theologians, such as Augustine and John Calvin, on God’s particular grace, which is always irresistible and never fails or is frustrated.

In dealing with the historical perspective of God's absolutely sovereign grace versus the well-meant offer, this book fills a gap in the literature, and does so in a way that is warm and easily understood.

 

Herman Hanko served as a minister in the Protestant Reformed Churches from 1955 to 1965, when he was appointed to serve as professor in the Protestant Reformed Seminary in Grandville, MI. He served in that capacity until his retirement in 2001. He continues to lecture widely in the USA, the United Kingdom, and other countries, including Singapore and the Philippines.

Studies in Hebrews study guide

Level Member Price $5.17

$7.95

Click for sample lesson

The epistle to the Hebrews is one of the more difficult books of the Bible to interpret. Yet it is important to study, primarily because it helps us to understand the relation between the Old and New Testaments. Those who sometimes struggle with the interpretation but who nevertheless persevere will find in Hebrews the rich fruit of learning and edification.

This publication explores the main theme of Hebrews, the relation between the Old Testament and the New Testament, as well as two sub-themes. One is the concept better, a term used twelve times in the epistle to help define the relation between the testaments. The other is the emphasis on faith as contrasted with sight.

This guide is split into 6 "parts." Each part is made up of 3-10 sections that can be used as "lessons" for personal or group study.

In this first of the general or catholic epistles, James, the half brother of Jesus, writes to the Jewish converts to the Christian church scattered throughout the known world.

This guide is not split directly into lessons, but instead into 35 "sections," with each section corresponding to a series of verses in James. Each section can be used as a "lesson" for personal or group study.
