The book of Acts was written by Luke who was one of the original 12 Apostles chosen by Jesus Christ himself. Ger states, “the traditional claim that Luke wrote Acts has been essentially uncontested throughout the books history.” 1 The book of Acts accurately records the historical account of the establishment of the early church through the gifting of the Holy Spirit as Jesus mandated before his crucifixion as explained in Acts 1:8, “but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” As we look into and investigate the verses leading up to verse 8 Jesus called his disciples to establish God’s kingdom on earth. The disciples anticipated this and talked about it between themselves, so much so that they even asked Christ in Acts 1:6 if it was the time that He was going to restore the kingdom to Israel. Jesus told his disciples to spread the gospel, but he purposefully told them to wait until they had received the Holy Spirit to do so.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
