The Acts of the Apostles
As promised by Jesus, the Holy Spirit filled believers with His presence and power. This series has a clear connection to the Gospel of Luke and most evangelical Bible scholars to conclude that Luke, a physician and missionary associate of Paul Col. 4:14, wrote both the Third Gospel and Acts. He addressed both works to Theophilus Luke 1:3; Acts 1:1, and in Acts 1:1-2 he referred to the Gospel as his “first narrative … about all that Jesus began to do and teach until the day He was taken up.” Luke thus wrote Acts as a sequel to the Third Gospel. He tied the two works together by reporting at the end of the Gospel and again at the beginning of Acts the Lord’s promise about the Holy Spirit Luke 24:49; Acts 1:1-8, as well as Jesus’ ascension into heaven Luke 24:50-53; Acts 1:9-11. Acts was written in the early 60s. Jesus assigned His followers the task of telling everyone about Him and His message.
