Showing how Christ’s Kingdom on earth is empowered to carry out his work in the world, the book of Acts shows the Church, enlivened by the Holy Spirit, teaching, preaching, healing, and restoring outcasts in the same way that Jesus did on earth.
The Acts of the Apostles provides an historic framework for understanding the rest of the New Testament. Paul’s letters in particular come alive in a new way when they are read within the context of the books of Acts narrative. You will see how the Gospel witness spread outward in waves from Jerusalem to Judea, and finally to the ends of the earth You will observe the way the Spirit-filled Church adapted to new cultures when proclaiming the Gospel. You will come to appreciate and see how the Holy Spirit guided the apostles into Truth, just as he does today in our Church and in each of us. This study will help you see your place in Christ’s Church.
