Overview

of
Acts
Summary:
Summary:
➤ The story of Christians from
the resurrection of Christ to
the first missionary efforts
primarily by Peter and
Paul the Apostles.
➤ Written by Luke.
Title:
➤The Title was added some time
after Luke wrote it. Some have
said that the book of Acts would
better be named “Some of the
Acts of some of the Apostles” or
“Acts of the Holy Spirit”.
Author:
Author:
➤According to verse 1 the author describes
himself as having written a former book.
An examination and comparison to the book
of Luke indicates that Luke was the author
of both books. Luke describes himself as
being an eyewitness to some of this by using
the pronoun “We” such as in chapter 16:10-
13.
Date:
Date:
➤ Likely AD 63 to AD 68. Paul not yet killed
and temple not recorded as being destroyed. It
seems unlikely that the book would have not
mentioned the destruction of Jerusalem in 70
AD if it had yet happened. Acts 1:19 talks of
Jerusalem as though it has not yet been
destroyed. Scofield believes that this book
covers the first 32 years after the death of
Christ.
