Overview

In our passage today, Paul, after having ministered in tremendous ways in Ephesus for three years, is now taking leave to go to Jerusalem. He assembles the elders, who are the leaders of the church, to say farewell to them.

Usually when this passage is taught, it’s taught to give us job descriptions of ministers or elders, or leaders. But I think it’s helpful to look at this from a different angle because it’s actually addressed to Christians. There are many speeches and sermons in Acts, but this is the only place where we actually have a sustained address given to Christians about how they should be the church.

We’re going to study this under four headings: truth, tears, ties, and not missing the forest for the trees.
