Overview

Acts 15 is not a chapter that is commonly used for sermons. It usually is not something we spend time on because it’s a long theological debate. But this debate teaches us at least four incredibly important things about the gospel itself. Truth matters because truth has consequences for how we live. Secondly, no other religion offers freedom from burdens like Christianity because Christ took on our burdens for us. Next, God uses community to reveal things to us and to teach us about him. Finally, unlike the sacrifices of the Old Testament, we are made pure by the work of Christ.

We learn the importance of these four things in Acts 15: gospel accuracy, gospel liberty, gospel community, and gospel purity.
