The Acts of Jesus, part 6

Daily Devotional

The book of Acts is more fully known as ‘The Acts of the Apostles”, which is logical since the narrative centres on the lives of Jesus’ apostles after his ascension back to heaven. And yet, the main actor in this narrative is the Lord Jesus, by the Holy Spirit, through his apostles. The clue is given by Luke in the opening verses: “In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach until the day he was taken up to heaven….” If Luke’s first book, his gospel, describes what Jesus began to do, this second book must be about all that he continued to do. And so this week’s series of devotional take us to the book of the Acts of Jesus.
