The book of the Acts is a divinely inspired record of the first 30 years of Christianity. It takes up the historical narrative where the four Gospels leave off (at the ascension of the Lord) and continues it from the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost to Paul’s captivity in Rome, some 30 years later. Being supplementary to the Gospels and introductory to the Epistles, the book of the Acts documents the transition from Judaism to Christianity. As we turn the pages of the book, we see the Lord leading His Jewish saints out of the bondage of that legal system into the glorious liberty of Christianity, one step at a time. This transition is not something that the apostles invented after the Lord died (as some Jewish detractors say), but something that He taught His disciples when He was still on earth. In John 10, the Lord said that He was going to lead His “sheep” (Jewish believers) out of the “fold” of Judaism into a new thing which He called a “flock,” where “other sheep” (Gentile believers) would be added (John 10:1-16). We see this fulfilled in the book of the Acts. Besides documenting the transition from Judaism to Christianity, the book also illustrates many Christian principles taught in the epistles in real-life situations.
