Study Questions on Act Ch 5 and 6 on 10/7

My Sunday school class/Life Group is studying the book of Acts. Every Monday, I’ll post the questions we discussed the day before. I encourage you to jot your thoughts down.

On Wednesdays, I’ll post some of the comments from the class discussion.

If you’d like a PDF file of the questions, email me at

Chapter 5 - Vv17-42

In v41, the apostles demonstrate an uncommon reaction to what has just taken place. What was the reaction, and what allowed them to act like this?

Chapter 6

Who is complaining here? What is the problem? Re-read 2:44-45 and 4:34-35. Why do you think this happened?

What is the rationale for providing “lay leadership” in this area?

Who made the decision to provide specific people for this need? Why?

We got this far this week. 

Who in the OT did something similar? Read Ex 18:13-26.

What were the qualifications for service?

What is particularly noteworthy about the description of Stephen?

How were they inaugurated?

Verse 7 mentions a group of converts largely unheard of until now. Who are they? Why do you think they are "suddenly" interested in the Gospel?

Stephen's description sounds more like he is part of what group rather than that one of the "waiters"?

Why, based only on the limited knowledge we have of Steve so far, is this not surprising?

Who are the people that first oppose Stephen? Why might that be significant?

What was the plan of the opposition?

Friday, This week Expressions of Faith is Scattered.
