Churchwide Bible Study | Acts of/and Imagination

Each week in November we have the opportunity to participate in Bible study with New Testament professor, minister, and friend of First Baptist Greensboro, Dr. Eric Barreto.

Each Monday (November 2-30) we will release a brief video Bible study that you can watch at any time over the course of the week belowYou can find each video on our Facebook page on Wednesday evenings.

Dr. Baretto will be guiding us through the book of Acts as we consider its implications for who we are today.  The Acts of the Apostles is not a blueprint for a perfect church. Instead, Acts contains stories meant to provoke and inspire our imaginations about how God might be present among us in vibrant and unexpected ways.  During these 5 weeks in November, we will walk through a number of imaginations for following Jesus into a changing world.

Eric D. Barreto is Weyerhaeuser Associate Professor of New Testament at Princeton Theological Seminary and an ordained Baptist minister. He is the author of Ethnic Negotiations: The Function of Race and Ethnicity in Acts 16 (Mohr Siebeck, 2010), the co-author of Exploring the Bible (Fortress Press, 2016), and editor of Reading Theologically (Fortress Press, 2014).
