The Acts of the Apostles, the sequel to the Gospel of Luke is an important witness to the origin and early day of the Church. Acts recounts the further adventures of followers of Jesus, such as Peter, John, and Philip, as well those who came to faith later like the Apostle Paul.
In this two-part course, we will look at several key episodes in the Acts of the Apostles, seek to understand the historical context, the theological vision revealed in the narrative of the story, and what the message of Acts means for us today.
Session 1: The Ascension and Replacement of Judas (Act 1:1-1:26)
Session 2: Pentecost (2:1-2:47)
Session 3: The Adventures of Peter and John (3:1-5:42)
