Bible Book of the Month Series: Acts

The Acts of the Apostles is the fifth book in the New Testament. The book of Acts deals with the history of the earliest Christian church and includes a major section on the career of Paul. New Testament scholars agree that the book of Acts and the Gospel of Luke were written by the same person. Most tend to date the two books around A.D. 80-85.

The book of Acts begins precisely at the point where the Gospel of Luke left off, with the ascension of Jesus. The author then describes the history of Christianity in general conformity with the geographical outline given in Acts 1:8.
