Acts of Apostles

Acts of Apostles is Part II St. Luke's work on the advent and mission of the Redeemer Messiah. In Part I that is his Gospel, St. Luke presented Jesus' mission to establish the Kingdom of God in bringing salvation to the "lost sheep of Israel" and to mankind in general. In Part II St. Luke covers the Church's development from the Ascension of Christ to St. Paul's journey to Rome as a prisoner. He presents the compelling story of how Jesus's Apostles and disciples carried forward the mission of the universal Kingdom under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
