Event Details

Luke's Gospel to the Acts of the Apostles 

As Jesus is the driving force in Luke, the Holy Spirit is the driving force in Acts.  The narrative begins with Jesus telling the Apostles to stay in Jerusalem and “wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about” (Acts 1:4).  Ten days later, on the Jewish feast of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit arrives in Jerusalem and the job of being Jesus’ “witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” begins in earnest.  As the Apostles wait for the Holy Spirit, the believers number “about a hundred and twenty” (1:15).  After Peter’s sermon on the temple mount at Pentecost, “three thousand were added to their number” (2:41).  By the time Peter and John appear before the Sanhedrin, “the number of men grew to about five thousand” (4:4), and as the Apostles continue teaching at the temple mount, “more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number” (5:14).  As the narrative takes us from Jerusalem to “Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth,” the numbers steadily increase.
 
Although Acts highlights the work of Peter and Paul in the Church’s growth, the Holy Spirit is the engine driving events.  As you read through the narrative, notice the pervasive presence of the Holy Spirit.  At Pentecost all of the Apostles “were filled with the Holy Spirit” (2:4); Peter tells his listeners on the temple mount to “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” (2:38); when Peter addresses the Sanhedrin, he is “filled with the Holy Spirit” (4:8); Peter tells Ananias that he has not lied to him, but “to the Holy Spirit” (5:3); on his second appearance before the Sanhedrin, Peter affirms that “we are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit” (5:32); and the seven deacons chosen to assist the community are “known to be full of the Spirit” (6:3).  The list grows throughout the narrative.  In a very real sense, The Acts of the Apostles could be more aptly titled The Acts of the Holy Spirit.
