Course Description: Aside from its religious content, the Acts of the Apostles offers a fascinating account of geography, travel, customs, and life in the eastern Mediterranean in the mid first century AD, through the lens of Paul's Journeys. We will begin with Paul's story in ch. 12. Luke's Greek is considered some of the best and purest in the New Testament.
