Synopsis: The Jerusalem church faced many challenges: deceptive church members, increasingly hostile rulers and organizational strain. Yet God enabled the church to overcome these problems and God continued to grant them numeric growth and powerful signs and wonders. The church was thriving. However, in the midst of its success, the church was failing in a critical way: it wasn’t pressing forward with Jesus’ mission to take the gospel to all nations. The gospel had not gone beyond Jerusalem. So God had to give the church a little push.
