This week we discussed various topics related to the church in Antioch, Syria. We learned the first instance a disciple was called “Christian” was in Antioch. A prophet came down from Jerusalem and predicted a severe famine that would spread over the entire Roman Empire, and we were able to pinpoint almost exactly when this was with the provided information.
The disciples decided to provide help for other Christ-Followers in Judea, sending their gifts with Barnabas and Saul.
We also debunk a myth about the early Christians being poor people, as many were well off.
