From Lesson 1, Leader’s Guide: “The theme of Acts is in Acts 1:8, where Jesus tells his disciples, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” The book opens soon after the crucifixion of Jesus and records the spread of the Gospel over 30 years. It is an amazing account. In that short period of time, the church grew from what was considered an insignificant Jewish sect to a major force in the Roman Empire. And that growth does not end with the end of the book of Acts. It continues today. What was set into motion on that first Pentecost after Jesus’ death and resurrection has tremendous impact on us today.”
