Acts Chapter 1 Audio

Acts Chapter 1. Luke, a doctor and a historian, wrote this book/treatise for a dignitary named Theophilus whose name means “lover of God.” We never know who will be affected by the things we write. Two thousand years later we today are affected by the writings of Luke. The emphasis of the Book of Acts is about the manner by which Jesus gave directions to the church after He was taken up.

Acts 1:1-2

1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

Acts 1:3 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:

Romans 1:8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

Acts 17:6 And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;

Matthew 23:36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

Acts 1:4-5

4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.

(NIV) Acts 1:4 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.
