In this lesson we will finish studying the second recorded account of persecution that the infant church experienced. We will examine their response to this persecution, which was radical. Then we will begin looking at an important leadership issue that’s recorded at the beginning of Acts chapter six. This deals with the sin of prejudice that crept into the church. The message of this lesson is vitally important for believers today.
We find Jesus still in the home of Zacchaeus, a chief tax collector. Zac had repented of his sin and vowed to give half of his wealth to the poor. After this Jesus gave The Parable of the Ten Minas, which is what we will study in this lesson. This parable contains some important truths that are essential to all those who want to make heaven their eternal home.
