The Holy Spirit in Luke-Acts by Graham H. Twelftree Luke, who allegedly wrote a gospel and the Acts of the Apostles, has more to say about the Spirit than any other biblical writer does. He portrays the Spirit as the activity and presence of God (Luke ) but also as an impersonal force or power (Luke , Luke ), and, for example.

    In the Acts of the Apostles, Luke continues the story of the risen Jesus, and describes the challenges the apostles faced in spreading His message through the Roman recounts how Peter and Paul navigated often-hostile environments to bring God’s beautiful promise to cities large and small. In this comprehensive course, Prof. N.T. Wright provides rich . Luke wrote to strengthen him in his belief. Given the contents of the book of Acts, Theophilus appears to have had questions about the coming and activity of the Holy Spirit, the ministry of the apostles, Paul and his dealings with the Jerusalem apostles and the advance of Christianity to the Imperial capital.

In the book of Acts Christ himself continues his work through the lives of his disciples. “The Holy Spirit is the presence of the living Lord Jesus in spiritual power in the lives of men.” [7] The Holy Spirit is the means by which Jesus continues to do his work in the world.

Acts of the Holy Spirit is C. Peter Wagner's complete commentary on the book of Acts. As the gospel began to spread to the world, the Early Church was confronted with spiritual and cultural barriers-strongholds-it had to overcome/5(36).

But Luke doesn’t quite leave it at that: he says that “He (Jesus) was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen ” (Acts ).

Jesus didn’t just give commands; He through the Holy Spirit gave those commands. Luke wants us to understand that Jesus didn’t just heal and do miracles through the Holy Spirit –. Acts - Work of the Holy Spirit. The book of Acts is called Acts of the Apostles but more aptly it is the work of the Holy Spirit working through the apostles.

It is written by Luke as a sequel to the gospel of Luke, picking up exactly where Luke left off. Luke was one of the followers of the apostles and was closed to Paul. The book known as the Acts of the Apostles has been referred to as a ‘history of the early Church’; indeed it is, but it is a vertical history.

Acts is not simply an account of the growth of the Church but is a testimony of the working of the Holy Spirit who impels Peter and Paul and their disciples to preach the truth, that is, “truth. And when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they began speaking in tongues and prophesying.” (Acts ) Here again we see that the baptism of the Holy Spirit occurs through the hands of the Apostles (in this case St Paul), and that it is accompanied with signs and wonders to validate the apostolic preaching.

The Acts of the Apostles, abbreviation Acts, fifth book of the New Testament, a valuable history of the early Christian church. Acts was written in Holy Spirit in the Acts of the Apostles book, presumably by the Evangelist Luke, whose gospel concludes where Acts begins, namely, with Christ’s Ascension into heaven.

The Acts of the Apostles is often called the Gospel of the Holy Spirit, for in Chapter One Jesus Christ promises the Holy Spirit will come after his Ascension into Heaven and Chapter Two begins with the Pentecost.

The Holy Spirit is named 40 times in Acts, more than any other book of the Bible. The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost - When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house.

The Gospel of the Holy Spirit: Mediation and Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles is a scholarly, yet immensley accessible, study of the Acts of the Apostles.

It highlights the deep theological and spiritual meaning of Acts and shows the vibrant life of the early Church and its leaders, on fire with love for Christ.5/5(7).

Brief Overview of The Book of Acts Luke wrote the Acts of the Apostles as a follow-up to his Gospel account of the life of Christ.

The Acts should be seen as a description of the ongoing work of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit through His apostles and followers. Luke’s aim is to give an historical record of the early church from its birth in.

The writer of Acts portrayed the Holy Spirit as the Source of spiritual power (). He attributed Jesus’s success in ministry--particularly in training the apostles and performing healings--to the work of the Spirit (; ).

Thus the earthly work of Christ serves as a model of ministry led and empowered by the Holy Spirit. The Bible lists three instances in which the Holy Spirit spoke to the apostles.

As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work which I have called them (Acts ). 1 In my earlier work, Theophilus, I dealt with everything Jesus had done and taught from the beginning.

2 until the day he gave his instructions to the apostles he had chosen through the Holy Spirit, and was taken up to heaven. 3 He had shown himself alive to them after his Passion by many demonstrations: for forty days he had continued to.

The Acts of the Apostles, often referred to simply as Acts, or formally the Book of Acts, is the fifth book of the New Testament; it tells of the founding of the Christian church and the spread of its message to the Roman Empire.

Acts and the Gospel of Luke make up a two-part work, Luke–Acts, by the same anonymous author, usually dated to around 80–90 AD. The first part. Acts New International Version (NIV) The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost. 2 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.

2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.

3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All. The activity of the Holy Spirit begins in the very first sentence of the book: “In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach, until the day when he was taken up, after he had given commands through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen” ().

2 The words that Jesus spoke were also. The Holy Spirit in Acts, not only breaks down ethnic barriers, He also breaks down social barriers. Wenk argues that the point of the story about Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch is to demonstrate how the cultically unclean (cf.

Deut. ) are accepted into the new community led and empowered by the Spirit. Wenk notes that the eunuch’s. When we come to the Acts in our Holy Bible reading, we meet with a history unlike any other in the world.

The marvelous fact that the precise and trustworthy author of the third Gospel took up his pen to record the foundation and early spread of Christianity has resulted in incalculable blessing to all succeeding ages of believers.

Acts tells us how the Holy Spirit came upon the church, and how the gospel spreads from Jerusalem to Rome. The book picks up where the Gospels (four accounts of Jesus’ life and ministry) leave off.

The book of Acts begins with the ascension of Jesus and the coming of the Holy Spirit, and goes on to show how the apostles preached Christ to the. the manifestation of the spirit in the five cases in acts We may now come back to the five cases of receiving the Spirit outwardly in the book of Acts.

In the first case, all the disciples were powerful on the day of Pentecost, and they had the release, boldness, and encouragement.And, in fact, because of this great stress on the Holy Spirit, many have even thought that the Acts ought to be entitled not “the Acts of the Apostles” but “the Acts of the Holy Spirit.” And Arthur P.

Pearson, who is one of my favorite writers of several generations ago now, has a little book out on the ministry of the Holy Spirit and.Acts of the Apostles, book of the New Testament. It is the only 1st-century account of the expansion of Christianity in its earliest period.

It was written in Greek anonymously as early as c.A.D. 65, but more likely later in the century, as a sequel to the Gospel of St. Luke Luke, Gospel according to Saint, third book of the New Testament.
