The Church in Jerusalem, Part 2 (The History of Christianity #14)

SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 1:18, "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God."

QUOTE: J. C. Wenger, "Christianity burst into a corrupt world with a brilliantly new moral radiance...The moral level of society was dismal, and sin prevailed in many forms...Into this discouraged world came Christ and His Spirit-transformed disciples, filled with holy joy, motivated by a love which the pagans could not grasp, and proclaiming Good News-the message that God has provided a Savior...The Christians lived in tiny communities knit together in the power of the Holy Spirit, little colonies of heaven. They thought of themselves as pilgrims on their way to the celestial city, but they were very much concerned to manifest the love of Christ in all human relationships."
