Gupta, Nijay K. A Beginner’s Guide to New Testament Studies: Understanding Key Debates. Grand Rapids, Mich.: Baker Academic, pp. Pb. $ Link to Baker Academic In the introduction to this beginner’s guide to the key issues for the study of the New Testament, Nijay Gupta recalls. The book of Acts is an important book for understanding the actions of the apostles, mostly Paul and Peter, after Jesus's ascension into Heaven. It is an important book in understanding how we can be directed by the Holy Spirit and the role of Jesus' lessons in our lives. This is the story of Christianity's beginnings and how evangelism played Author: Kelli Mahoney. 1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach 2 until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. 3 After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. The book of Acts is unlike any other biblical book. The Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) describe the life and ministry of Jesus Christ when He was in the flesh, while much of the rest of the New Testament is made up of letters written by the apostles to the early church after the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus.

Peter Goeman posted the th Biblical Studies Carnival for April If you do not know Peter, he is professor of Old Testament and Biblical Language at Shepherd’s Theological Seminary in Cary, NC. He has been blogging since , but this is his first carnival. Like Brent Niedergall’s. Acts 3 1 Now Peter and John were going up into the temple at the hour of prayer, i the ninth [hour]. 2 And a certain man that was lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the door of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; 3 who seeing Peter and John about to go into the. In Acts we read a verse of Paul’s of final Sermon to his beloved Ephesians: “I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.”.
Acts 8 New International Version (NIV). 8 And Saul approved of their killing him. The Church Persecuted and Scattered. On that day a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. 2 Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply for him. 3 But Saul began to destroy the church. Paul, like Peter, is presented as a miracle worker (Acts –18; ; –12; –10) and the object of divine care (Acts –31). In Acts, Luke has provided a broad survey of the church’s development from the resurrection of Jesus to Paul’s first Roman imprisonment, the point at which the book ends. Acts 1 Jesus Taken Up Into Heaven 1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach 2 until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. 3 After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. The book of Acts sheds light on the gift of the Holy Spirit, who empowers, guides, teaches, and serves as our Counselor. Reading the book of Acts, we are enlightened and encouraged by the power of the gospel as it spread throughout the world and transformed lives.
