2014 Session 5: Deaconess — Dignified

In this session, Dr. Nunnally continues with an examination of the two lists of believers found in Romans 16. Again, as before, the subject offers a snapshot on the composition of the first Christian communities. The discussion also ranges back into the subject of “women in leadership,” and the importance of both male and female adherents to the spreading of the good news throughout the world.

1Timothy 3:1,-11; Pliny-the-Younger’s letter to Trajan, Book 10; Romans 16:15; Leviticus 15:2; Acts 10:44; Acts 11.

2014 Session 4: Apostleship

In today’s class, Dr. Nunnally introduces a discussion of the two groups of Apostles, referred to in the New Testament. The first group is made up of the twelve original disciples of Jesus, plus Paul. The second group consists of a larger, strategic collection of believers within the ministry of the early church, who were “equally sent out.”  

Romans 16:7; Acts 14:4,14; 2 Corinthians 8:23; Galatians 1:19; Mark 3:21: Acts 1; 1 Corinthians 15:7; Romans 16:7; Acts 15:22; Philippians 2:25; 1 Corinthians 9; Ephesians 4:11-16

2014 Session 3: The Early Church and Its Community

“All scripture is God-breathed, and that includes the two lists of names we find in Romans 16.” In this session, Dr. Nunnally takes up the heroics of the first Christian believers — people who forged strong relationships with each other, and worked together to accomplish what they couldn’t have accomplished alone. There are two lists of believers in Romans 16. One names Jewish Christians; the other offers a list of Gentiles. “These are ‘gifts’ that God gave to the early church.”

Romans 16:1,3,5,7,8,12; Acts 18:1-2; Suetonius, Life of Claudius, Book 25, paragraph 4; Acts 18:24,26; 1Timothy 12:2; Matthew 1:1-17; Acts  18:7-8; Exodus 15; Ephesians 4:11
