The Book of Acts and the Gospel of Luke are, in essence, are two parts of the same book. Acts continues where Luke's Gospel leaves off. And so we interpret the Book of Acts in the context of what Christ has done. As such, the Book of Acts then becomes a bridge connecting what Jesus has done to what Christ is doing in His church today.
As we begin our study into the book of Acts, we begin by examining the work of Christ in the Gospels. We see that Jesus is building His church through the proclamation of the Gospel. And while the work is finished through the blood of Christ, there is still work to be done through applying the work of the Cross through preaching the Gospel.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson.
