The Righteous One and His Witness (Acts 21:27-22:22)

Acts Sermon Series at Elmira Christian Center

In the last major section of the book of Acts, from chapters 21-28, Luke devotes a significant amount of space to the imprisonment, court appearances, and defense speeches of the Apostle Paul. Why? Because Scripture is not only concerned with showing us Paul as missionary, church planter, and encourager of the saints, but also as a witness on trial for the gospel. These final chapters serve as a profound apologetic for the Christian faith. In this sermon, Pastor Matt reveals from Paul’s example that Christians are called to bear witness to Jesus, the risen King who justifies sinners. Believers in Jesus Christ are those who profess that he is alive and exalted, and who call an unbelieving and hostile world to be reconciled to God through faith in his name.
