  • What is the significance of this event within the Christian community? How did it affect the Christians you read about in your Scripture readings this week? Specifically, address how this theme is evident within the writing of the Apostle Paul (drawing specific textual support from reading Romans 6-8 and 1 Corinthians 15).
  • Session 3 Galatians Reflection PaperIn your reading of Gundry this week, the author introduced the book of Galatians, specifically in Chapter 12. Please write a one to two-page paper addressing the following:
    • According to your textbook, what is the big deal about Galatians?
    • Why is it such a crucial and important book to Christianity?
  • Session 3 Early Church PresentationThe book of Acts is an exciting and fascinating book for Christians to study, as it displays the characteristics, environment, and excitement of the early church. Much can be learned by analyzing how the early church conducted themselves and how they lived. As Gundry (2012) states, it is believed that the historical events that are written about in the book of Acts took place somewhere around the year of 60 A.D. This was a mere 30 years after Jesus’ death and resurrection.For this assignment, we will be looking at the apostles’ mission to share the Gospel with the Gentiles. You will do a study of one of the geographical areas described in the book of Acts during the very beginnings of the Church’s spread of Christianity to the Gentile nations. You will also analyze why this mission was controversial, dangerous, and significant for the early Christian church. Start out by reading Acts 10-15.Once you have finished your reading, select one of the following areas mentioned in the reading:
    • Caesarea
    • Jerusalem
    • Antioch
    • Iconium
    • Lystra
    • Do some additional research to identify the cultural context and geographical location of this area during the time that the book of Acts took place.
    • Analyze and articulate the significance of this location in the spread of Christianity.
    • Looking at the entirety of Acts 10-15, identify the various “parties” in the argument over the spread of Christianity to the Gentiles.
    • Describe each “party’s” point of view and how the early church finally settled the issue.
    • What do you think was ultimately at stake in the argument?
    • Be five to eight slides long, not including the title slide and the reference slide.
    • Include three academic sources (cited and referenced according to APA requirements). One of these references may be your textbook.
    • The Notes section below the first slide should explain the target audience. The slides themselves should be visually oriented and not too text-heavy. Rather, place detailed presentation notes in the notes section below each slide.
    • A voiceover is not required for your presentation but is certainly welcomed in place of detailed notes.
      • If you choose to use voiceovers in the place of detailed notes, see the Technology Quick Guide on the Course Dashboard for specific tips on how to use free technology to create such voiceovers, such as Screencast-o-Matic. Plan and practice your presentation before recording. Once your recording is complete, upload the recording into YouTube as directed in the Quick Guide and copy the YouTube link (URL) to use for your assignment submission.
