Learning to Preach from Acts 2

The beginning of the church, the appearance of the Kingdom, was preceded by “preaching” the Word of God (Gospel of Jesus Christ). That’s how Christ’s church grew and God’s Kingdom advanced. We’ll never outgrow the need for preaching (Rom 10:17; 10:14; Acts 28:30-31; 1 Cor 1:21; Acts 8:3-4; 2 Tim 4:1-2). What truths must be preached?

I. LIFE OF JESUS

A. God’s knows Him (Acts 2:22; John 1:1-5, 14)
B. You know Him (Acts 2:22)

II. DEATH OF JESUS

A. God’s determined plan (Acts 2:23; Luke 24:25-27; Gal 3:13; Acts 3:18)
B. Man’s godless hands (Acts 2:23)

1. Crowd (Acts 2:23)
2. Leaders (John 11:47-53; 15:24-25)
3. Judas (Luke 22:22)

III. RESURRECTION OF JESUS

A. God raised Him up (Acts 2:24) – Proofs:
1. Empty tomb (under their noses)
2. Scripture (Acts 2:25-29; Psa 16:8-11)
3. Eye witnesses (Acts 2:30-32; Acts 2:6-8)

IV. ASCENSION OF JESUS

A. God exalted Him (Acts 2:33-34)
B. Bow to Him (Acts 2:36)

PREACHING: Explaining the Scripture, Exalting the Savior, Exhorting the sinner.
