Where are we going?
Life in the church in Jerusalem is described at the end of chapter 2 and chapter 4. It’s an idyllic picture we would be hard pressed to beat if we were tasked with drafting the image of perfect church life. As beautiful as those passages are, they’re not the only passages describing what it was like for the early church in Jerusalem. Of course, our responsibility is not to strive for perfect communal life, but to seek Christ first and his kingdom and fulfill the mission of proclaiming his name until he returns.
