"When the fullness of time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons." (Galatians 4:4-5)
Jesus Christ came into the world at a particular point in history, to a particular place in the world and born into a particular culture. But none of this happened by chance but God sovereignly ordaining the time and place of His appearing. Not only this, but the circumstances into which the Lord was born ensured that the Church would be born into circumstances that would help promote the spread of the Gospel.
Join us for the second lesson in early church history as we study the historical background of the church. We will see how history prior to the appearing of Jesus Christ was truly preparation for His appearing. And in doing so, we begin to see how history after His first coming paves the way for the diffusion of His Spirit throughout the world.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May the Lord bless you as you take this journey with us through the history of Jesus' Church.
