(Acts of the Apostles)
When you think of the Book of Acts, think of the Ascended Savior Actively
Building His Church
Is it surprising that Luke wrote a larger part of the New Testament (the Gospel of Luke & the Book of Acts) than did the Apostle Paul (in his many short epistles)? Luke’s two books give a full record of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. In his Gospel of Luke, he records the birth, life and ministry of Christ on earth. In Acts, he records the ministry of Christ building his Church through the Holy Spirit’s filling and guidance in the lives of the apostles and early Christians. Thus, Acts records the post-resurrection work of the Lord Jesus Christ, who actively builds his Church.
Christ’s Great Commission is recorded in each of the four gospels of the New Testament (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-48; John 20:21). Then, it is also given in Acts 1:8. The Book of Acts records the actions and results of the apostles and early Christians as they carried out their “commission.”
Christ’s Great Commission will continue in force until he returns for his people in the rapture of the Church. Until that time, he will build his Church by working through the lives and ministry of his people.
