In the first century there were multiple apostles, each directly sent out by Messiah to act in His Name. How were all of these apostles able to deal with potential conflicts of authority to harmoniously build up the one Body of Messiah? Some modern scholars say that such a conflict brought about a rift between the Jerusalem apostles and Paul whereby Paul went off on his own to found a new religion called “Christianity.” In this program we trace the inspired record of Paul’s life and find that charge to be groundless. Not only that, but we find that Paul and all of the apostles worked out the great questions that confronted them in a harmonious way reflecting the deep commitment to the one Body of Messiah that characterized all of them. What is it really like to be an apostle? In this program you will get a Scriptural, and a very profound, answer.
Test your knowledge of the BODY of MESSIAH:
What is the five-fold ministry? What is the three-fold foundation? Why must the five-fold ministry be built upon the three-fold foundation? Why must the Body of Messiah be built upon the three-fold foundation? What happens if it’s not? What is the purpose of the five-fold ministry? What is the purpose of the Body as a whole? How is the Body of Messiah different than religion? Where do you fit in to the Body?
Now let’s move on to some questions about APOSTLES:
Where does the term ‘apostle’ originate and what does it mean? (Here’s a hint: It has to do with the Hebrew term ‘shaliach’) Who were the OT/Tenach apostles? Who was the first apostle of the Renewed Covenant era? What are the different categories of apostle and how do they differ from one another? Why should you care?
If you don’t know the answer to any of these questions this program is just what you need.
