Sermon Series: Footsteps of Paul
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to trace the footsteps of the Apostle Paul? Here's your opportunity to do just that. Experience the sights and sounds of early Christianity during The Lutheran Hour's special five-week sermon series. Each week's broadcast will be complemented online with:
- an introduction video of Rev. Gregory Seltz, Speaker of The Lutheran Hour, shot on location at various sites throughout Europe;
- a video of travelogue lecture studies given by Rev. Seltz during the "Footsteps of Paul" tour that he hosted for Lutheran Hour Ministries in November 2013;
- and a PDF of a Bible study discussion guide written by Rev. Wayne Palmer, Theological Editor for Lutheran Hour Ministries.
The travelogue and introduction videos will provide a context of what Paul was experiencing during his mission trips to the various cities so that the meaning of each sermon will be enriched for the listener. A Bible study PDF is also available for groups wanting to discuss the significance of Paul's travels and wrap everything together.
Be sure to visit this page the week before each broadcast to view or download the introduction and travelogue lecture study videos.
