The Church Taught About Jesus (Four Lessons)
While the enemies of Christianity wanted to see the followers of Jesus retreat and fade away—and while some of them did everything they could to force Christians to stop talking about Jesus, or at least to talk about Him only between themselves—God’s people grew both geographically and in number. The Church Taught About Jesus unit is about the early church’s continued expansion. Despite persecution, and in some cases probably because of believers’ response to the fierce opposition that the church faced, people came to know Jesus and joined His followers in introducing Him to others. The church grew because it continued to teach people about Jesus. Lessons in this unit are listed below. Just click on each lesson title to access the individual lessons.
