Overview

A work on the birthing and youthful church from an elder exegete and seminary professor has been needed for some time and now is fulfilled. J.
Dwight Pentecost pours out his many years of in–depth study on the book of Acts in this new study. New Wine emphasizes the study of Acts as a transitional narrative. The Kingdom has been inaugurated and the church has been birthed.

Read as Dr. Pentecost examines the church being weaned by the apostles, beginning to walk amid prosecution, and finally run with the impetus of a new apostle, Paul. Discover important questions the early church thought through and acted upon. Watch as the church develops its structure, questions its Jewish habits, and embraces its diversity. New Wine helps the pastor and the layperson see and understand the changes and transitions that God was orchestrating as it is written in the book of Acts.
