Memory Verses: Proverbs 18:10
Day 1: Read Luke 9:1-6 and discuss: When did the disciples become apostles? In what ways are these men different in the companion volume to Luke’s gospel: Acts? Are there still Apostles today? Why or why not?
Day 2: Read Luke 9:1-6 and discuss: What are the two qualifications for being an Apostle? Why was Paul qualified? What are the two continuing church offices for which there are specific qualifications? Considering when it was likely written and who James was, why is James 5:14-16 an especially significant verse to dispel any notion that the healing power of Apostles should be a continuing sign today?
Day 3: Read Luke 9:1-6 & Heb. 2:2-4 and discuss: Regarding the entire physical life of Jesus on earth, list the specific parts that the true Apostles would have witnessed. Why were these things so important to the more-developed gospel message they would preach in Acts?
