John Whitcomb: June 3, 2019

If you are a regular listener to "Encounter God’s Truth," you know that Dr. John Whitcomb is widely known as an Old Testament professor. The one New Testament book that he has lectured on extensively is the book of Acts—the only inspired history book of the church.

He tackled the massive project of teaching through this book over the course of six years at the Independent Fundamental Bible Conference—a gathering held annually at the Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut. We present these studies with much gratitude to them for their help and assistance. This week, then, we open Volume One of our study of the second book written by Luke to Theophilus, which tells us how the church began to minister in the days following “The Ascension of Christ.”

God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! Host Wayne Shepherd reminds us of that, and adds helpful background to our study. Thanks for listening—and please share this with a friend!
