Hello Acts!

today's reading.
Acts 1:1-8    In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach...

think about it.
What proofs does Luke present for the resurrected Christ (1:1-3)? Why are these important? What were Jesus' last instructions to His disciples (1:4-5)? Why did they need to wait (1:7-8)? How do you react when God tells you to wait on something He wants to do?

the blog.
I'm excited today because we're starting a brand new extended Back to the Bible radio series on the Book of Acts (and let me just say, it's a really good series). So that means we'll be looking at Acts here on P4 as well. Basically we'll read through, consider and talk about the entire book of Acts over the next six weeks. So please plan on joining us for Back to the Bible and, of course, P4.

Luke, the author of Acts, starts the book off with a reminder that Jesus was alive and with the apostles for 40 days after his death and resurrection. Then he goes on to talk about God sending the Holy Spirit. 

So what do Jesus' words in Acts 1:1-8 show us about the Holy Spirit? How about our actions now that we have the Holy Spirit residing in us? Tami W.
