Christians in the Antioch Church

  1. 1. Christians in the antiOCh ChUrCh Majority of this lesson is from a sermon by Donald C Macaskill
  2. 2. aCts 11:19-30 net Acts 11:19 NET Now those who had been scattered because of the persecution that took place over Stephen went as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch, speaking the message to no one but Jews.
  3. 3. aCts 11:19-30 net 20 But there were some men from Cyprus and Cyrene among them who came to Antioch and began to speak to the Greeks too, proclaiming the good news of the Lord Jesus.
  4. 4. aCts 11:19-30 net 21 The hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number who believed turned to the Lord. 22 A report about them came to the attention of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch.
  5. 5. aCts 11:19-30 net 23 When he came and saw the grace of God, he rejoiced and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with devoted hearts, 24 because he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith, and a significant number of people were brought to the Lord.
  6. 6. aCts 11:19-30 net 25 Then Barnabas departed for Tarsus to look for Saul, 26 and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught a significant number of people.
  7. 7. aCts 11:19-30 net Now it was in Antioch that the disciples were first called Christians. 27 At that time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch.
  8. 8. aCts 11:19-30 net 28 One of them, named Agabus, got up and predicted by the Spirit that a severe famine was about to come over the whole inhabited world. (This took place during the reign of Claudius.)
  9. 9. aCts 11:19-30 net 29 So the disciples, each in accordance with his financial ability, decided to send relief to the brothers living in Judea. 30 They did so, sending their financial aid to the elders by Barnabas and Saul.
  10. 10. intrODUCtiOn Luke has been describing the spread of Christianity by Philip, Saul, Peter & John. The central body of the Church was at Jerusalem. That is where the New Testament Church Head Quarters were!
  11. 11. intrODUCtiOn The Apostles were sent out from there to strengthen and review the work going on elsewhere. Peter & John to Samaria, Acts 8:14 NET Now when the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them.
  12. 12. intrODUCtiOn Acts 11:2 NET So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcised believers took issue with him, Peter goes himself to report to Jerusalem, and now we find when there are believers at Antioch, the Church sends out Barnabas!
  13. 13. intrODUCtiOn Acts 11:22 NET A report about them came to the attention of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. Let us now look at God's work at Antioch.
  14. 14. the ChUrCh at antiOCh Jesus had commanded His disciples to begin preaching the gospel at Jerusalem. Then take it to Samaria and Judea – and then to “to the farthest parts of the earth.”
  15. 15. the ChUrCh at antiOCh Acts 1:8 NET But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the farthest parts of the earth.quot;
  16. 16. the ChUrCh at antiOCh That was their commission. Acts 8 tells of Philip's ministry, + Peter's & John’s work in Samaria. In Acts 9 we see Peter in Lydda, Joppa, in Acts 11 Caesarea, ie, the areas surrounding Jerusalem.
  17. 17. the ChUrCh at antiOCh We now read that the believers who had scattered brought the gospel to Phoenicia, the island of Cyprus and Antioch in Syria about 300 miles north west of Jerusalem (Buffalo, MO to Oklahoma City [mapquest 317] - by foot or camel!)
  18. 18. the CitY Of antiOCh in sYria. There are about 16 Antiochs! They were founded by one of Alexander the Great's generals, Nicator named cities after his father Antiochus!
  19. 19. the CitY Of antiOCh in sYria. This one Called 'Antioch the Golden – Queen of the East,' was the third largest city in the Empire after Rome and Alexandria.(ISBE) Pop: 300,000 to 500,000.
  20. 20. the CitY Of antiOCh in sYria. From its foundation Antioch was a cosmopolitan city. Though not a seaport, its situation was favorable to commercial development. (ISBE)
  21. 21. the CitY Of antiOCh in sYria. About five miles distant from the city was the suburb of Daphne, a spot sacred to Apollo and Artemis. This suburb, beautified by groves and fountains, and embellished by the Seleucids and the Romans with temples and baths, was the pleasure resort of the city, and “Daphnic morals” became a by-word. (ISBE)
  22. 22. the CitY Of antiOCh in sYria. The citizens were a vigorous, turbulent and pushing race, notorious for their commercial aptitude, the licentiousness of their pleasures, and the profanity of their wit. Literature and the arts, however, were not neglected. (ISBE)
  23. 23. the CitY Of antiOCh in sYria. The main street was 4 miles long, paved with marble and marble colonnades! The only city at that time with street lights! It was a city full of interests which attracted all classes of people!
  24. 24. the ChUrCh at antiOCh The Church at Antioch was actually a very famous Church. Famous for the right things. It took over from the Jerusalem Church – because the Jerusalem Church did not reach out as commanded by the Lord.
  25. 25. the ChUrCh at antiOCh It did not go to the ends of the earth. It was content to stay in Palestine and the surrounding districts and not move out across the waters!
  26. 26. the ChUrCh at antiOCh It was 'afraid' to move out of its comfort zone! It remained inward looking! Remember it was afraid to accept Paul in as a believer – it would not take risks! Quite happy to keep the status quo?
  27. 27. the ChUrCh at antiOCh It was still blessed, it was still the centre of orthodoxy, but it lost its 'cutting edge' as the driving force for the gospel in the world. It was destined for greater things but failed to be obedient to what Jesus had instructed it.
  28. 28. the ChUrCh at antiOCh As a result it lost its role as the centre of activity. In fact you do not read of it again as a centre of Christian activity apart from a geographical location and historical reference.
  29. 29. the ChUrCh at antiOCh Like so many other cities in Scripture, Beersheba, Shiloh, Gilgal, etc it lost its glory. While it did retain its official and historical significance and a centre for administration, it was no longer the hub of spiritual initiatives!
  30. 30. the ChUrCh at antiOCh The Antioch Church was the Church that made things happen in the world! It was the Church that sent Paul and Barnabas on the first Missionary journey, and from where they departed on the second & third!
  31. 31. the ChUrCh at antiOCh Antioch was the place to be if you wanted to be involved in the Church's progress! “The Lord's hand was with them”
  32. 32. tWO LessOns - #1 When the Church saw people, they thought 'evangelism'! They saw new people as opportunities for evangelism! Not only did they go where the people were, but when they saw unbelievers their hearts went out to them.
  33. 33. tWO LessOns - #1 Whereas the Jerusalem believers who were scattered abroad only spoke to the Jews, 19 “speaking the message to no one but Jews.”
  34. 34. tWO LessOns - #1 These Christians 20 “began to speak to the Greeks too, proclaiming the good news of the Lord Jesus.” Beware of the Churh that is not interested in people! The early Church was attracted to large populations of all nationalities and cultures!
  35. 35. tWO LessOns - #2 It was an everybody ministry – the blessing did not come from a pulpit based sermon! There was no official leader among them. Here is all we know about any who served in the Church at Antioch.
  36. 36. tWO LessOns - #2 Acts 13:1 NET Now there were these prophets and teachers in the church at Antioch: Barnabas, Simeon called Niger, Lucius the Cyrenian, Manaen (a close friend of Herod the tetrarch from childhood ) and Saul.
  37. 37. tWO LessOns - #2 Probably no great preacher among them. Of course Barnabas & Paul were sent there to help out but they spent much of their time on Mission trips. No great charismatic personality, like Apollos! Was there a special formula? No! Just ordinary people telling the Word!
  38. 38. tWO LessOns - #2 Speaking the Word in normal conversation! In doing this, they were preaching, “proclaiming the good news of the Lord Jesus.”
  39. 39. tWO LessOns - #2 Now I grant you, this is a gift. But it is something we need to pray for – and then nurture it and practice it, just as we do in other disciplines like reading, studying, praying!
  40. 40. the resULt The Result? The Church grew! 21 “a great number who believed turned to the Lord.” That is what we all want!
  41. 41. the resULt It happened because all the Christians were living good lives & taking every opportunity to talk of the Lord. It was an 'everybody ministry' as Paul taught the Ephesians about the ministry.
  42. 42. the resULt Ephesians 4:11 AUV-NT And He gave some people [the gift of being] apostles; and some people prophets; and some people evangelists; and some people pastors [i.e., elders] and teachers, 12 for the purpose of equipping the saints [i.e., God’s holy people] for the work of serving [others], in order to build up the [spiritual] body of Christ [i.e., the church].
  43. 43. the resULt So the numbers grew and they needed help! They sent to Jerusalem – probably thinking Nicolas the deacon who was from Antioch would be sent but no!
  44. 44. the resULt Acts 6:5 NET The proposal pleased the entire group, so they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, with Philip, Prochorus, (prok´o-rus) Nicanor, ́̄ (ni-ka´nor) Timon, Parmenas, ̄ ̄ (par´me-nas) and Nicolas, a Gentile convert to ́̄ Judaism from Antioch.
  45. 45. BarnaBas They sent a man with the biggest heart – Barnabas! His name means encourager. And as his name is, so is his character. He helped them! Acts 11:24a NET because he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith,
  46. 46. BarnaBas Barnabas was an extrovert (it may even be that they were 'happy' to send him as he did not fit-in with their reserved inward- looking Spirit. His enthusiasm/energy for mission could be better employed there!)
  47. 47. BarnaBas Christians enthusiastic for the gospel, are not critical of people! Barnabas would very likely have found some things displeasing (pagans after all), yet he only had good things to report .
  48. 48. BarnaBas He did not allow the 'negatives' to obscure. Acts 11:23 NET When he came and saw the grace of God, he rejoiced and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with devoted hearts,
  49. 49. BarnaBas Note his immediate response. It was not 'Can they be true Christians? Have they really got the Holy Spirit within them?' Not suspicious - rather what he saw made him “rejoice.” Proceeded to “encouraged them all”
  50. 50. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? That is the real work of a preacher – to encourage and give hope. It is a ministry of mercy! The Church's work is not to discourage folk, or to break them down and take away any hope.
  51. 51. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? The reverse. People ought to be encouraged when they leave church that there is hope for them! Barnabas encouraged them to “remain true to the Lord with devoted hearts.”
  52. 52. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? He was really speaking about perseverance! Perseverance in the faith! The Christian faith is not something you try for a while to see 'if it works'!
  53. 53. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? It is a faith to live by – 'for better or for worse'! You don't stop trusting the Lord when things go wrong in your life – in fact that is when you trust God more and discover His support!
  54. 54. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? If it was not for the bad times we would not know much of God's grace! Now “a significant number of people were brought to the Lord.” (Greek = 'added‘) - to the Lord, to the Church!
  55. 55. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? So much so that they needed help! Barnabas knew the exact person for the job! 10yrs ago, yes, 10yrs since Saul was shipped to Tarsus!
  56. 56. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? Acts 9:30 NET When the brothers found out about this, they brought him down to Caesarea and sent him away to Tarsus.
  57. 57. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? Barnabas must have known Saul had been called to the Gentiles! Acts 9:15 NET But the Lord said to him, quot;Go, because this man is my chosen instrument to carry my name before Gentiles and kings and the people of Israel.
  58. 58. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? Barnabas must have guessed that Saul was going to outstrip him and take over the leadership – yet that did not keep him from seeking out Saul!
  59. 59. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? You may be doing something today which will be of help to you, or someone else, 10yrs from now! God works like that. The whole of our lives are knit together - but years can separate events which when 'connected' bring great blessing.
  60. 60. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? Our whole lives are a series of connected events! No wonder Paul wrote later Romans 8:28 NET And we know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose,
  61. 61. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? We do not know what he was doing these 10yrs, but are certain he was not wasting his time or moping about lost opportunities. He probably was evangelizing!
  62. 62. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? We know he preached in Illyricum (i-lir´i- kum) but no record of it in his travels – maybe during these 10yrs? They certainly were years of preparation.
  63. 63. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? Romans 15:19 NET in the power of signs and wonders, in the power of the Spirit of God. So from Jerusalem even as far as Illyricum (i-lir´i-kum) I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.
  64. 64. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? Barnabas' Christlike Spirit probably rubbed-off on fellow Christians, thus 26 Now it was in Antioch that the disciples were first called Christians.
  65. 65. Can We aLL Be Like BarnaBas? Antiochians(?) were full of wit, specially for name-calling. They called bearded Emperor Julian 'The Goat'! Good if we were given the same name, “Christian” – for the same reason, we are “Christlike!”
  66. 66. COnCLUsiOn What are we to make of the “Christians” in the Church at Antioch? Shouldn’t we follow their lead? GiVe heLP Where heLP is neeDeD!!
  67. 67. COnCLUsiOn Agabus prophesied a famine – so that believers could help one another! 29 So the disciples, each in accordance with his financial ability, decided to send relief to the brothers living in Judea.
  68. 68. COnCLUsiOn When the brothers living in Judea needed help they helped financially. That’s not the only help they gave. Where ever there were people they saw a need for Spiritual help.
  69. 69. COnCLUsiOn They were a mission minded Church! Christians in Antioch knew people were dying in their sins all over the world.
  70. 70. COnCLUsiOn Three times Antioch Christians saw Paul start a Mission trip to speak the Gospel, the Good News, of Jesus to a big part of the known world of that day.
  71. 71. COnCLUsiOn We may think Paul’s travels as miniscule since he only visited Eastern Europe and a bit of the Middle East/Asia-Minor. Remember, there were no motorized means of transportation then.
  72. 72. COnCLUsiOn The fastest way to travel must have been by sailboat. Could the sailboats of that era have been even a fraction as efficient as the sailboats that carried the early settlers to America?
  73. 73. COnCLUsiOn Here’s the point I’m getting at. We may only be able to physically reach a few miles around our homes, but there are still lots of people in that small area that are dying in their sins.
  74. 74. COnCLUsiOn It’s not fun to think about, but we must, they are headed straight for HELL! Can we not be bothered to help them Spiritually?
  75. 75. COnCLUsiOn We have and can continue to help people Spiritually in other parts of the world by using our finances to send missionaries, just like Paul was sent.
  76. 76. COnCLUsiOn it is stiLL an eVerYBODY MinistrY! eVerYBODY inCLUDes Me & YOU!
