This Bible Study Series was produced and created especially by Biblesoft, for use in the PC Study Bible and OneTouch programs. It has been taken from articles and notes written for our partner Bible Online Study Site, and been adapted for use as an electronic reference work. Originally created for the Fall of 2017, it is divided into 21 separate studies, and can be used as a monthly or seasonal Bible study course. Each study provides in-depth analysis of the Greek (or Hebrew) text of Scripture, along with an extensive examination of the historical and culture background, questions of interpretation, and more!
This particular series deals with the Sermon-Speeches in the Book of Acts, from the great Pentecost speech of Peter in chapter 2 through the Areopagus speech by Paul in chapter 17. For each sermon-speech, the Greek text is examined in detail, as well as the historical background and literary setting in the narrative. Citations from the Old Testament are careful studied—both the original context and how the passages are interpreted and applied in the Acts speeches. Difficult points of interpretation, theology and historical criticism are dealt with thoroughly. If you have ever had a question about any of these sermon-speeches, you are likely to find it addressed in these studies!
Both the Study series and the additional notes function as a Commentary in the program, and can be accessed by verse directly under the Commentary menu.
We hope that you will find these studies to be rewarding, provocative, and inspiring!
