Acts is the pivotal book in the New Testament, looking back to the Gospels and forward to the Letters. It is the sequel to the gospel story written by Luke. In Acts, the disciples witness Jesus ascending into heaven and the Holy Spirit coming on the day of Pentecost. We will trace the origin and growth of the Christian movement between the years of A.D. 30-60 as it expands from Jerusalem westward to Rome. Acts is the story of the triumphs and trials of early Christianity, including the passions that drove it and the source of power that energized it. Any Christian who wants to know how to be a disciple of Christ should study Acts to know how the first Christians lived. It is an important building block in understanding the rest of the New Testament.
