These essays use an interdisciplinary approach for recent Book of Acts scholarship. Insights from the social sciences, narratological studies, Greek and Roman rhetoric and history, and classics, set Acts in its original historical, literary and social context.5/5(2).

The Acts of the Apostles, abbreviation Acts, fifth book of the New Testament, a valuable history of the early Christian church. Acts was written in Greek, presumably by the Evangelist Luke, whose gospel concludes where Acts begins, namely, with Christ’s Ascension into heaven. Acts was apparently written in Rome, perhaps between ad 70 though some think a slightly earlier date is also possible.

The book title's are not inspired. The book certainly does not tell all the acts of all the apostles; it doesn't even relate some of the acts of all of the apostles. Some have suggested that a better title might be the Acts of the Holy Spirit.

Additional Background to the Acts of the Apostles. The book of Acts tells the story of both the glorious and tumultuous early years of the Church. It is filled with all the drama, thrills, adventure and suspense. But for those who read its words more purposefully, they will find blessing and encouragement, as they take in the powerful events that would begin to shape the Church into the mighty organism that it is.

Book of Acts The book of Acts provides a detailed, orderly, eyewitness account of the birth and growth of the early church and the spread of the gospel immediately after the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Its narrative supplies a bridge connecting the life and ministry of Jesus to the life of the church and the witness of the earliest believers. The Book of Acts as History When we read the book of Acts, it seems obvious Luke intended to write some sort of history of the expansion of the early church from a small messianic sect of Judaism in Galilee and Judea to an empire-wide religion which included both Jews and Gentiles.

The book of Acts shows how God essentially took a group of fisherman and commoners and used them to turn the world upside down (Acts ). God took a Christian-hating murderer and transformed him into history’s greatest Christian evangelist, the author of almost half the books.

The main theological emphasis of the book of Acts is the Holy Spirit. The book begins with Jesus' promise of the Holy Spirit, which is later fulfilled in reference to the Jews (ch.

2), and then for the Gentiles (ch. 10). Reference to the Holy Spirit comes in a variety of ways. The Book of Acts, which continues the narrative that Luke began in his gospel, is especially important because it was the first written history of the Christian church.

Acts concerns the very vital period in Christian history between the resurrection of Jesus and the death of the apostle Paul, the time when Christian ideas and beliefs were. TIMELINE OF THE BOOK OF ACTS Dates Reference Events Books Written Historical Events Roman Emperors c.
