Lesson Review – Acts 19-20:6 – Paul’s Work in Ephesus


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Acts 19-20:6 – Paul’s Work in Ephesus.

This is lesson 55 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 133 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 55 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Both repentance (from sin) and faith (in Jesus) are necessary parts of the gospel.

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

Paul faithfully shared the gospel with all who would listen in Ephesus and throughout Asia.

Questions for Discussion

Why did Paul question the people at Ephesus?

He wanted to know if they believed in Jesus and if they had received the Holy Spirit.

Who were the men believing and trusting in?

They believed in God but had only known the message of John the Baptist—to repent of your sins. They did not know the message of Jesus dying on the cross to pay the penalty for their sins.

What happened when Paul preached the gospel in the synagogue at Ephesus for three months? Did the people believe?

No, the people argued with Paul and refused to believe.

What did Paul do after the people in the synagogue refused to believe?

Paul left and took his disciples with him and taught in one of the other buildings in town. He did this for two years so that all the Jews and Gentiles who lived in the area heard the word of the Lord.

Praying together

Take time to pray with your child, asking God to show both of you more and more about how amazing the gospel is and that He would use you to tell others.
