If you had been living in the 1st century, how would you have felt after Christ Jesus’ ascension? If you had known his disciples, how would you have helped them to spread the Good News?
The star of the Book of Acts turns out to be our answer. And who is that star? Peter? Paul? It’s actually neither Peter nor Paul. Rather, the character who predominates in Acts is the Holy Spirit.
The story of how the Holy Spirit guides the new Christian church after Jesus’ departure is a thrilling one! Written by Luke, the Book of Acts conveys the breathless, stirring accounts of the Gospel’s fast-spreading influence. Luke helps us see not only the nature of the Holy Spirit but equally how that nature transforms the entire world. As Acts 1:8 puts it: “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (NRSV)
By relating the conditions during the days of the early Christian church, Acts imparts many life lessons still pertinent in today’s world. The book is one of the most popular for Bible Study groups, especially those just launching. You can purchase the 86-minute video lecture in a CD format or as an MP3 download. An Acts of the Apostles Bible Study Workbook is available if you and your friends decide to undertake such a study.
