Acts is the sequel to the Gospel of Luke. In Luke, Jesus’ mission was to an area not much bigger than Greater Sydney and Wollongong; in Acts, the message about him will go to some of the greatest cities of the Roman Empire. In Luke, a handful of real followers stumble and fail and are constantly getting Jesus wrong; in Acts, tens of thousands will worship Jesus. The apostles will change from repeatedly failing followers, to commissioned and brave witnesses to the resurrection. Jesus will give them the Spirit and strength to stand and be counted. Acts tells the story of many normal Christians doing extraordinary things for God.
