ACTS OF THE APOSTLES

Luke wrote both the Gospel of Luke and Acts of the Apostles. Many, if not all, ancient authorities agree that Luke wrote this book probably as a continuation of the Gospel of Luke. Acts is the history of the church.

There are many examples of how God adds obedient people of all nations, races and gender to His Body. It also reflects difficulties of letting go of past prejudices, of mans desire for exclusiveness and of problems with desire for power, pride and wealth.

Acts furnishes us with many examples of eyewitnesses statements. Proof of credibility by signs and miracles. Acknowledgment by men and God that Jesus was The Son of God who lived in the flesh among men.

Jesus willing gave his life as the only sacrifice needed for forgiveness of sins for those obedient to His message.

As you study Acts ask God to help you keep you mind open so you will obtain a clear understanding of His Word.
