Peter said:  . . . Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.  Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, Brothers, what shall we do?  And Peter said to them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:36-38/ESV)

Articles on the Acts of the Apostles will be published here as they are prepared for various adult Sunday School and Bible Study activities.

The traditional name for this book is Acts of the Apostles, but a more accurate name might be A Few Acts of a Few of the Apostles.  The book does not contain the Acts of all the Apostles, neither does it contain all the acts of any Apostle.  Peter and Paul are particularly prominent; the other apostles play little or no role.  Luke identifies people as Apostles who are nowhere else so identified: Paul, Barnabas, Timothy, and Silas

Acts of the Risen Jesus might also be an appropriate name for this book.  Luke tells us that his first book (the Gospel of Luke) was about all that Jesus began to do and to teach until the day he was taken up to heaven.  Acts is the second volume of Luke's history.  It is about what Jesus did after his ascension into heaven directing and teaching the apostles through the Holy Spirit.  Acts 1:1-2: 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. (ESV)

The Acts of the Holy Spirit might also be another name for this book.  As Jesus promised (John 16:7, 13), He sent the Spirit to guide the apostles after he returned to heaven.  -  John 16:7, 13: Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you.  But if I go, I will send him to you. ... When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. (ESV)
