The Demonstration of the Apostolic Preaching

Christ told His disciples that they would be His witnesses. The disciples spread the gospel of Christ far and wide. What did the apostles say about Jesus that drew such different people into unified communities? Why should anyone believe it? Irenaeus sought to answer those questions in The Demonstration of the Apostolic Preaching.

Irenaeus (130–200) was the first theologian to fully tell the Bible’s story of creation, fall, redemption, and restoration. This classic work presents and defends our common Christian heritage as God’s redeemed people. It helps us see why those who are saved by Christ must be united in Him.
