The Book of Nehemiah (Yahweh Consoles or Comforts) lifts up God’s people from the discouragement of spiritual ruin to the satisfaction of success in carrying out God’s program for rebuilding. The insights into spiritual leadership and mutual ministry are set against the backdrop of the sufficiency of God’s power and God’s resources to accomplish His work. Much can be learned about the role of prayer, the application of God’s Word, the defense against Satan’s opposition and the value of a practical work ethic that stays focused on the priority task at hand.
The Book of Acts chronicles the foundation of the Christian church on the day of Pentecost and its spread throughout the known world in the first century. What starts as a Jewish based movement in Jerusalem under the leadership of Peter, develops into more of a Gentile orientation led by Paul and the members of his missionary team sent out from Antioch. The emphasis is on the simplicity and power of the gospel presentation with its focus on the resurrected and ascended Jesus Christ. The power of God is demonstrated through the ongoing activity of the Holy Spirit working through selected leaders.
