Reaching A City

From Series: For the Sake of the Gospel, Volume 1

Acts 19:23-41  (ID: 2454)

While preaching the Gospel in Ephesus, Paul spoke persuasively about the fact that “gods made by human hands are no gods at all.” As a result, local craftsmen who sold silver shrines of the goddess Artemis lost revenue, and a riot ensued. Alistair Begg points out, though, that Paul still followed the pattern that Jesus Christ modeled by reaching out to the lost and suffering with loving tenderness and a sincere invitation to be transformed.


23About that time there arose no little disturbance concerning the Way.
