Book Overview - Acts

by Rhoderick D. Ice

INTRODUCTION TO THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES

This book of the New Testament begins where the first four come to a close. Luke, our historian, begins with the Lord being taken up into heaven, and shows us the apostles and the nucleus that would begin the church of Christ on this earth. We see them waiting in Jerusalem (Acts 1:15). The promised signal to begin would be the "baptism with the Holy Spirit" (Acts 1:5). [Note how Jesus applies what John the Baptist had said.] Luke shows us the day called Pentecost, and we see the Holy Spirit come down and fill the waiting disciples with spiritual power.

Over nineteen centuries ago, Joel's prophecy CAME TRUE, and the Holy Spirit came. Jesus called Him "ANOTHER Helper." Jesus would not leave his people to be ORPHANS when he went back to the Father! He sent another Helper to be with them forever!!! The world can never to be the same! The world cannot go back to where it was before the Spirit came! Ground has been captured that can never be lost [since the facts of the past cannot change]! The existence of Christ's church is its own credential! This is The Last Days: they are swiftly running to their completion, and the saved in Eternity will be a "great crowd," so many that no one can count them (Revelation 7:9). The real power of Pentecost is not the miraculous gifts from the Spirit. The real power is in TRANSFORMED LIVES!!!

This book shows us the first time that God's terms for saving man are announced (Acts 2:38). It shows the spread of Christianity into Palestine, and then throughout the civilized Roman world. It was Peter who preached that Pentecost. But Paul, as the apostle to the Gentiles, soon is the chief actor in the drama that unfolds.

This book could not have been completed before Paul's release from prison in 62 A.D., nor can it be dated past 67 A.D., since it does not mention Paul's death. Luke probably wrote it during the two years at Rome with Paul (Colossians 4:14), completing it as Paul is released. Traditional history says Paul did go to Spain after his release, and also preached in the East before he was recaptured in 66 A.D. at Nicopolis (Epirus) on the west coast of Greece. He was decapitated at Rome in 67 A.D., shortly after he completed the letter of 2 Timothy.
