John Whitcomb: August 26, 2019

Last time on “Encounter God’s Truth,” Dr. John Whitcomb showed us how the Apostle Peter, accompanied by the Apostle John, healed a lame man—and how that miracle provided an opportunity for Peter to preach to the massive crowds of people who were assembled at the temple in Jerusalem, and to share the reality of the Messianic Kingdom with them. “The Re-offer of the Kingdom” is a difficult subject, which reminds us that—as host Wayne Shepherd always tells us—God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. This message is part of Volume One of a larger series called “Acts: Witness of the Early Church.” It was first delivered to a congregation assembled for a special conference held at the Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut. We thank them for their assistance in bringing it to you here on “Encounter God’s Truth”—a weekly radio and Internet outreach of Whitcomb Ministries. May the Lord bless you as you listen and share it!
