The exhibition tells the story of the birth and growth of the early Christian church. It is based predominantly on the New Testament book of ‘The Acts of the Apostles’. The scene is set with a brief introduction of the life, death, and resurrection, from the gospels before following the influence of the Apostle Peter and then the Apostle Paul on the rapid growth of the Christian church. We will follow the Apostle Paul on his four missionary journeys, from the Middle East, into Asia Minor and then bringing the Christianity into Europe. On his first Missionary journey (around 44-46AD) Paul travelled around 1,500 miles!
The journey through the book of Acts will introduce characters like Simon Peter, Paul, Lydia, Silas, the Philippian Jailer, Priscilla, King Agrippa.
Hear the story of ‘Pentecost’, Stephen’s martyrdom and the amazing change in Paul’s life. We visit the Jail in Philippi, complete with real stocks, and hear the jailer’s amazing account of a night he would never forget. We learn how Paul, and others, shared the good news about Jesus, and how Christianity spread across the mighty Roman empire.
