This is the story of what Jesus did next.
After all, the story of Jesus does not end with the resurrection of Jesus, or even with the ascension of Jesus. The book of Acts is Luke's inspired account of what the ascended Jesus continued to do and teach, by his Spirit, in his church.
The first twelve chapters of Acts include some of the most famous portions of Scripture: the ascension of Jesus, the coming of the Spirit at Pentecost, the first Christian martyrdom, the conversion of the church's arch-persecutor, Saul, and the coming of the gospel to the Gentiles. Behind each event the sovereign hand of God is at work, giving birth to his church, shaping his church, using his church, and growing his church.
These eight studies chart the birth of that church--a church that still stands, that we are members of by faith, and that has the same mission as the one started in Acts: a task unfinished of being Christ's witnesses "to the end of the earth" (Acts 1 v 8).
“God-centered, application-oriented, and driven by the text throughout, this resource is a gift to God’s church.”
