The Birth of the Christian Church

Luke’s purpose in writing the book of Acts could simply be to record the history of the Christian church, but many theologians believe he wrote it to provide Paul and other Christians with a legal defense for their faith. 

Luke writes consistently to prove three things: 

  • Christians are not a political threat to Rome. 
  • The Christian church is the continued ministry of God in the world. 
  • The Christian church is a diverse, but united group of people who have received salvation in Christ.

As you study Acts and read about the Spirit-led faith of the early church, allow God to ignite your own heart and mind with that same kind of boldness and faith.
