The word Christian is found but three times in all the Scriptures. The places where it occurs are Acts 11:26- Acts 26:28- and 1 Peter 4:16.

The places where it occurs are Acts 11:26- Acts 26:28- and 1 Peter 4:16. These read as follows: And the disciples were called Christians first at Antioch. Then Agrippa said unto Paul-you almost persuade me to be a Christian. Yet if any man suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God on this behalf. The chronology of some of the events recorded in the Acts is not entirely certain, but it seems pretty clear that the followers of our Lord were not called Christians until ten or twelve years after our Saviors ascension to heaven. The Christian is a delightful and encouraging work, describing twenty-seven facets of the Christian experience. Altogether, it is an excellent, succinct presentation on what it means to be a Christian. This treatise could serve the believer well as a daily devotional as well as an evangelistic tool to explain the experiential life of a Christian to the inquiring unbeliever. Joel Beeke.
