  These early letters (James, 1 & 2 Peter, John, and Judah (Jude)) are some very interesting texts. All are very practical. James is about wisdom. 1 Peter is living among persecution. 2 Peter focuses on Christian character in the now, while carrying the mentality of 'Maranatha' (Come and get us, LORD!)! 1 John applies to various churches, 2 John focuses on one, while 3 John is addresses /5(14).

Letters to the Church is a compelling call encouraging this generation to passionately pursue God's vision for his church. Challenging you to ask 'What does God want for his beloved Bride?' Francis Chan recalls how the early believers' zeal to proclaim the gospel transformed the world and he equips readers to continue their work and restore the church to its former glory.   1–21– There are two or three places that address whether the originals survived into the second century. Tertullian, writing in c. CE, said, “Come now, you who would indulge a better curiosity, if you would apply it to the business of your salvation, run over [to] the apostolic churches, in which the very thrones of the apostles are still pre-eminent in their places, in which.

The history of Christianity concerns the Christian religion, Christian countries, and the Church with its various denominations, from the 1st century to the present.. Christianity originated with the ministry of Jesus in the 1st century Roman province of ing to the Gospels, Jesus was a Jewish teacher and healer who proclaimed the imminent kingdom of God and was crucified c. AD 30– Dear Church isn’t just a good idea for a book study—the grace-filled ferocity that overwhelms its pages reminds one of early writings from the Latin American base communities that formed liberation theology as we know it today. Duncan has written a necessary addition to the corpus of Christian writings in the twenty-first century.
