The book of Acts continues the story Luke began in his Gospel. Acts covers the thirty years after Jesus' resurrection and ascension (from A.D. 30-60). In that short time, the church was established and the good news of salvation was taken throughout the Roman Empire, reaching all the way from Jerusalem to Rome. Those preaching the gospel, though ordinary people with human frailties and limitations, were empowered by the Holy Spirit to change their world. Throughout the book of Acts we learn much about the workings of Christ's Spirit through his body, the church, and we realize that he is still working today through those who live in the Spirit.About the Series
