Mission Accomplished…

Acts 28:11-31

Big Idea: Your mission is done when you’re done. 

Your mission isn’t done when…

  1. You’re discouraged
  2. You do the same thing over and over and over again
    • …with the same result over and over and over again
  3. You don’t like the result

  • Expounding the Law of Moses and the Prophets
    • Genesis 3:15
    • Jesus as the sacrificial lamb
    • Isaiah 9:1 – Messiah would come from Galilee
    • Isaiah 52:13-53:12 – substitutionary atonement, brutal murder, no children, no physical appeal, cursed by God, died among the wicked, convicted though innocent, silent before his accusers
    • Daniel 9:25 – places the coming of the Messiah at 33 AD
    • Daniel 9:26 – He would come to the temple – temple was destroyed in 70 AD
    • Psalm 22 – describes a brutal murder like a crucifixion
    • Isaiah 7:14 – he would be miraculously born of a virgin
  • No v. 29
    • And when he had said these words, the Jews departed and had a great dispute among themselves NKJV

  • Why does Acts end here?
    • Maybe Paul died after the trial in Rome
    • Maybe Luke is now caught up to current events with his letter
    • Maybe this is where Luke wants to leave the letter. His goal is to document how the Great Commission of Jesus was followed in the early church. He starts in Jerusalem and ends in Rome, which represents the ends of the earth.
