Acts 15:1-11


Acts 15 describes the dissension that arose as the Judaizers tried to saddle the new Gentile believers with Jewish traditions. What role did the law still play in this new faith? We spend some time studying Joseph, a wonderful Old Testament picture of Jesus, and the many ways he seemed like an unlikely deliverer. Our Savior, in like manner, did not seem to be what the Jews were expecting in their Messiah, but the work of the salvation was fully accomplished in Him.
