Acts 6:1-7, pt 1. Peter and the apostles just stared down the Supreme Court of their day, and the Supreme Court blinked. In the last day or so they’d also been miraculously freed from jail and narrowly avoided execution, so it’s a safe bet that they weren’t super fired up to come back and find out that there was an argument flaring up at church. In Acts 6, the foreign Christian widows were being forced to the back of the food line by the local Christians. How will the first fight in the history of church fights get resolved?
Matt Whitman believes in God and thinks things are funny. He was raised in Fort Collins, Colorado before moving to Chicago where he graduated from Trinity College and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He met his wife Camilla on his first day of college in his first class. They’ve got three kids together and now live in the mountains of beautiful western Wyoming where Matt works as the Senior Pastor of the Lander Evangelical Free Church. Matt’s a teach-straight-through-books-of-the-Bible kind of guy and uses his appreciation of history, humor, culture, and narrative to help people understand God’s Word. In addition to church and family, Matt throws a lot of time at filmmaking. He writes, acts, and directs and also hosts a YouTube program called The Ten Minute Bible Hour in which he teaches books of the Bible in a tight, informative, and funny format.
