How did the obscure Jewish sect called ‘The Way’ become the Christian Church? How did the communities of Jesus’ disciples continue their life and mission as the first generation of Apostolic leaders passed? We deal with these and other questions in this lecture.
Delivered at Christ Church, San Antonio, Texas on September 25, 2016.
I recently taught an intensive semester on church history at the International Bible College of Zambia. The campus is far removed from any large city and the stars at night were easily visible. Here is what we saw each evening around dinner time.
I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing, and then having lunch with, Ali Shimshek. He is the person who translated the New Testament into modern Turkish, and his translation is used by Protestant and Catholic churches throughout Turkish every day.
