COVERSIONS IN THE BOOK OF ACTS

 

In this study we will be looking at a number of conversions recorded in the Book of Acts.  From these we will be able to determine what God required of those people and us in response to the grace, which He has lavished on mankind.

 

A number of conversions are recorded in the Book of Acts but there are many, many conversions that are not recorded.  Is this just a happen stance?  I would suggest that these were recorded for a particular reason.

 

Pentecost

3, 000 Jews are converted, as the gospel is first presented at Jerusalem.  This is the conversion norm as established by its primacy and the statement by the Apostle Peter that the promise was to them (Jew) and their children and all them that were afar off (Gentiles), even as many as God would call to Himself.

 

Samaritans

The Samaritans were a mixed race who had as little interaction with Jews as possible.  God called both men and women.

 

Ethiopian Eunuch

The Ethiopian was Gentile yet a proselyte to Judaism

 

Saul of Tarsus

Saul was a rabid Pharisee, murder, and persecutor of the church

           Acts 22: 16

 

Cornelius

Cornelius was a Gentile, soldier and recognized as a good man

 

Lydia

Lydia was a woman, a worshipper of God

 

Philippian jailor

The jailor was an unbeliever

 

Ephesians

The disciples of John the Baptist

 

Conclusion

God bless
