Introducing the Acts of 
the Apostles
 The New Testament
 
Document #: TX002285
 
It is the only book that functions as “part 2” of a Gospel. Written by the sameauthor as the Gospel of Luke, it picks up the story of Jesus’ saving mission
where Luke leaves off.
More than the other New Testament books, Acts reads like a history of theearly Church. As we study it, we will seek to understand these historicalelements, as well as their deeper spiritual meaning.
The Acts of the Apostlesis a unique book of theNew Testament.
It is not a Gospel or an Epistle
it is its own unique genre, with no other book like it.
