Acts 18:24 — 19:41 - Corps Notes - November 30, 1976

Acts 18:24
“Jew” - It’s sort of interesting, in this book I was telling you about, he documents it like I did;
that the word “Jew” never appeared in any language in English, or in any of it until 1775. In
1611 King James was originally done. So they must have gotten this word “Jew” in here
sometime later. It is “Judean” in the text, which it is all over, you know. And the reason it’s
that, is because they were Judean by religion. And that, of course, was later called Judaism. I
forget who the first one was that called it Judaism. He has it documented in here, and I forget it.
Then it was called Rabbinism. That’s the stuff that the Jews are taught today.

“Apollos” - This man’s name was Apollos, and Apollos is just a shortened word for
Apollonius. It was like a nickname. You have a nickname, like Steven has a nickname called
“Steve”, Apollos is like a nickname. Apollonius is his real name, born in Alexandria, in Egypt,
which was the great Greek center of learning, and a lot of the dispersion Jews, as they are
referred to, had gone to Alexandria and other places. When the Septuagint translation was
made, the solidly Judean people who believed in the Mosaic laws refused to read it, as a matter
of fact, it was very, very bad if anybody did read it.

 Victor Paul Wierwille was a Bible scholar and teacher for over four decades.

By means of Dr. Wierwille's dynamic teaching of the accuracy and integrity of God's Word, foundational class and advanced class graduates of Power for Abundant Living have learned that the one great requirement for every student of the Bible is to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Thus, his presentation of the Word of God was designed for students who desire the in-depth-accuracy of God’s Word.

In his many years of research, Dr. Wierwille studied with such men as Karl Barth, E. Stanley Jones, Glenn Clark, Bishop K.C. Pillai, and George M. Lamsa. His formal training included Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Theology degrees from Mission House (Lakeland) College and Seminary. He studied at the University of Chicago and at Princeton Theological Seminary from which he received a Master of Theology degree in Practical Theology. Later he completed his work for the Doctor of Theology degree.

Dr. Wierwille taught the first class on Power for Abundant Living in 1953.

Books by Dr. Wierwille include: Are the Dead Alive Now? published in 1971; Receiving the Holy Spirit Today published in 1972; five volumes of Studies in Abundant Living— The Bible Tells Me So (1971), The New, Dynamic Church (1971), The Word's Way (1971), God's Magnified Word (1977), Order My Steps in Thy Word (1985); Jesus Christ Is Not God (1975); Jesus Christ Our Passover (1980); and Jesus Christ Our Promised Seed (1982).

Dr. Wierwille researched God's Word, taught, wrote, and traveled worldwide, holding forth the accuracy of God's "wonderful, matchless" Word.
