''Faith in Action'' video....Jesus Disciples depicted with ''field service bags'' and preaching with ''Scrolls''
" Do not carry a money bag, a food pouch, or sandals" . says the Gospel of Luke.
Oh dear, those Christians in the JW Org pic. would have been in the backroom in front of a J.C. for "Brazenly" going against the instructions of Jesus ! Ha Ha !
I highly doubt christians went door to door until the very late second century. More likely third.Adnt hey had all sort of beliefs. Some were Gnostics, Some we would roughly call Caothlics, Some were Messianic Jews. Some were like JWs. Arian. Did they carry scrolls. No. How cumbersome and dumb. If they carried anythign it would have been a codex of selected books. But not door to door. In church.
I still, to this day, am gobsmacked that this thing was actually greenlit.
"And he called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He charged them to take nothing for their journey except a staff--no bread, NO BAG, no money in their belts." - Mark 6:7-8 (ESV)
It looks a bit like this picture from the Study Bible, except without the tracts.
Does anyone know where the picture from the video appeared in print?
(Oh, you need to navigate to Acts 20 to see the picture)
"The illustrations shown in the in the Media Gallery are based on extensive research. However, they are artists’ renditions and, at times, depict only one of several possibilities."
Yep, nothing says "you can trust us" like admitting to not really KNOWING what your subject is.
BTW, the other depiction for Acts 20 on the website; is that Tight Pants Tony?
