Bible studies in Acts Chapter 13 cover The calling of Barnabas and Saul and the beginning of their missionary journey on Cyprus. The questions are designed for personal or group inductive style Bible study and discussion. 

Acts Chapter 13

For more information on the early church, see recent books on the Book Of Acts.

Acts 13:1-27, Barnabas and Saul Called:

1.  How many prophets and teachers were there for the whole city of Antioch?

2.  Has the Holy Spirit ever spoken directly to you or someone you know?

3.  Why do you feel it was important for the Bible to mention they were fasting when the Holy Spirit talked to them?  Is it necessary to fast to hear the Holy Spirit?

4.  Why do you feel they were preaching in the Synagogues, weren't those people already close to God?

5.  What do you think a sorcerer did?  What do you think this one did to turn Sergius Paulus from the faith?

6.  Do you feel it was wrong for Paul to blind the man?  How about evil people today?  What do you feel should be done to people who, say, kill people because they are Christian?

7.  Verse 13 refers to Paul (also Saul) and his associates, but verse 2 refers to Barnabas and Saul...why do you think Paul was now considered the leader and Barnabas just an associate?

8.  Why do you feel Paul went to such lengths to discuss Israel's history?, vs 16-25?

9.  When explaining Jesus to people, do you feel it's important to cover the history and to apply Him to their experience of life?

Acts 13:28-52, The Other Events at Pisidian Antioch:

1.  They accused Jesus of blasphemy when they crucified Him, why do you think Paul said there were no proper grounds for a death sentence in vs 28?

2.  Do you feel God really raised Jesus from the dead or was this a figure of speech?

3.  Can you think of ways you or others act as though there is nothing after this life, like with the death of a loved one or excessive concern about things of this World.  Why do we feel this way if we believe in the resurrection?

4.  Why do you feel Paul told them the forgiveness of sins is through Jesus (vs 38)?

5.  What do you think Paul was referring to when he said there where things the law of Moses could not justify them from?  Does this include murder? Does he mean Jesus can justify us from even these things?

6.  Why do you feel the Jews were jealous of Paul?  Does this happen in Christianity toady?

7.  How would jealousy indicate they did not consider themselves worthy of eternal life?

8.  What do you think it means in verse 48 by the phrase, "all who were appointed for eternal life believed."

9.  What is the significance of Paul shaking the dust off of his sandals?
