1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach 2 until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. 3 After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.   Author: The book of Acts, also called Acts of the Apostles, does not specifically identify its author. From Luke –4 and Acts –3, we know that the same author wrote both Luke and Acts. The tradition from the earliest days of the church has been that Luke, a companion of the apostle Paul, wrote the books of Luke and Acts (Colossians ; 2 Timothy ). T he Book of Acts in the Bible, written around A.D., may be best described as a history of the founding and growth of the early church. While there are some areas of great detail of the Acts of the Apostles, many times you must use cross references to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John as well as some other epistles in the New Testament to get the full picture of what was.

We read of the evangelistic methods and message of the early apostles and preachers 3.

The message of Acts is “The Church of Jesus Christ is divinely established and spiritually empowered to proclaim the gospel and plant believing communities locally, regionally, and globally.” Authorship It is generally held that Luke, the physician and traveling companion of Paul wrote both the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts. Pastors and church leaders especially need to revisit the book, immerse themselves in it, and not leave until it produces some radical changes in their thinking and practice. If we fail to learn about what real Christianity is from the book of Acts, we will just keep on playing church, pleasing men, and displeasing God. [ words].
