Evangelism in Acts 12 is the eleventh episode in our series looking at the evangelistic encounters found in the Book of Acts. In this episode, Matt and Joshua discuss Peter’s miraculous rescue from jail and the mysterious death of Herod.

In the first section Acts 12 we see Herod persecuting the church through the killing of James the brother of John and the jailing of Peter. However, Peter is miraculously delivered by an angel of the Lord. In the last part of Acts 12, the death of Herod is discussed. Herod had accepted worship as a god and in doing so, brings on his end. This account finds corroborating parallels in extra-biblical history as is discussed in the episode. Through both of these events the word of God is increased as the Gospel goes forth.

When we developed our training approach for Engage 360, we did not focus on what verses can be used to explain the Gospel. Instead, we looked to the Bible and asked the question, “What did they actually do?” Below is the summary of their approach.

  • G: Gauge your audience
  • O: Offer common ground
  • S: Shift to Christianity and the Gospel
  • P: Provide evidence
  • E: Explain the Gospel
  • L: Leave with a clear next step
