How does the purpose of baptism change in the Book of Acts? How does the meaning and purpose of Jesus’ death and resurrection evolve in the Book of Acts? How does speaking in tongues in Acts and what Paul later writes about to the Corinthians differ? How does Joseph Smith use Joel chapter 2 differently than how the Book of Acts uses it? All these questions and more are discussed in this episode of The CES Podcast.

Welcome to episode 15 of Rational Faiths’ newest podcat series, The CES Podcast (for the rest of us), with Bible scholar, Dr. Sheldon Greaves and his co-host, Michael Barker. Dr. Greaves and Mike Barker will be looking at this year’s seminary and institute curriculum, which covers the New Testament, and will be distilling a week’s worth of lessons and readings down to a half hour podcast. Episode 15 will cover Acts chapter 1-5.
