Patristic Nectar Publications is pleased to present a new 8 lecture series entitled: The Original Church: Lectures on the Acts of the Apostles by Father Josiah Trenham. The Acts was written by the Holy Apostle and Evangelist Luke, as the 2nd part of his great literary masterpiece setting forth the Life of Jesus Christ in his Gospel, and then in the Acts showing forth the new Christian life made possible by the Lord’s great and saving deeds and the descent of the Holy Spirit. Here in these sacred pages we discover what St. Paul calls “new creation in Christ.”
