1—ACTS

WHAT JESUS BEGAN TO DO AND TEACH
Acts 1:1-3 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, (2) Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: (3) To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

IN THE GOSPEL OF LUKE WE HAVE THE ACCOUNT OF ALL JESUS BEGAN TO DO AND TEACH IN THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ––
Luke 4:1 (ASV) And Jesus, full of the Holy Ghost, returned from the Jordan, and was led in the Spirit in the wilderness.

IN THE BOOK OF ACTS WE HAVE THE CONTINUING STORY OF HOW JESUS FOLLOWERS –

  1. Proclaimed the Gospel.
  2. In the same power of the Spirit.
  3. Worked the same kind of miracles
    John 14:12 (ASV) Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father.
  4. And lived the same kind of life.
  5. The Holy Spirit reproducing the life and ministry of Jesus in and through the church–the theological keynote of the book of Acts.
  6. The book could well be called – "THE ACTS OF THE HOLY GHOST."

OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING CONCERNING THE HOLY
SPIRIT'S INSPIRED RECORD IN THE BOOK OF ACTS.

  1. All Scripture, including the book of Acts, has important teaching and theological significance.
  2. This is confirmed by these facts that the early church maintained that the following is true:
    2Tim 3:16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
    1. Paul states that all Scripture have an instructional and teaching ––
    2. 1Cor 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. {ensamples=examples or types}
    3. Paul maintains that these examples have practical and theological relevance for the believer –
    4. Rom 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
  3. In writing this inspired history of the early church Luke provides
    1. A distinct and definitive pattern of the Holy Spirit to be followed during the entire church age.
    2. Information for developing and understanding the doctrine of the Holy Spirit.
    3. Revelation concerning how the ministry of the Holy Spirit was not be an elitist teaching, but must relate to the lives of all believers in Christ.
  4. Note specifically two elements in Acts that are theologically and practically normative
    1. the baptism in or filling with the Holy Spirit as God's fulfillment of the promise for all believers – Acts 1:5,8; 2:4,39; 4:8,31; 8:15-17; 9:17; 10:44-46; 13:9,52; 15:8; 19:1-6…WITH INITIAL EVIDENCE OF SPEAKING IN TONGUES.
    2. the numerous activities of the Holy Spirit that provided the church with–
    3. the standards of righteousness.
    4. the standards of witness.
    5. the standards of power, that God desires for His people in the last days [the church age].
