  3. 3. EKKLESIA Is a word that means “assembly.”The church is an assembly of God’speople with a purpose to teach, inspire, and lead others to faith inJesus Christ. The Book of Acts shows us what the Assembly can do whenthey are empowered by God to reach out into the whole world.
  4. 4. INTRODUCTION Chapters 1 + 2 give us a look at the time Jesus spent with His disciples following the resurrection and the“birth” of the Church at Pentecost. It shows the promise and deliveryof the Holy Spirit and the very firstsermon and it’s fallout.
  5. 5. 40 DAYS (CH 1) 1:1-3 These 40 days represent the time Jesus appeared to His disciples to leave no doubt that He really was alive again. 1:4-8 Their baptism was foreshadowed by John the Baptist (see Luke 3:16).
  6. 6. 40 DAYS (1) 1:9-11 This scene really presents Jesus’power and glory in the flesh one last time. Angels again told spectators Jesus wasn’t there (see Lk 24:4-5). 1:12-14 The list of 11 Apostles and friends mentions Jesus’ earthly brothersamong the group.
  7. 7. 40 DAYS (1) 1:15-26 Matthias was selected by God even though lots were cast (see Prov 16:33). Judas was replaced not because of his death, but because of his defection. James wasnot replaced after his death in 12:2because his death was “in the Lord.”
  8. 8. PENTECOST (CH 2) 2:1-4 Pentecost was celebrated 50days following the Passover. The Holy Spirit descended (or arrived) with power. Note that the presence of fire once again represents God’s message and divine orders to His servant,just like Moses in the wilderness andthe burning bush (see Exodus 3:2-5).
  9. 9. PENTECOST (2) 2:5-13 The crowd, made up of Jewsand pilgrims from all across theworld are amazed at the events. These “devout men” would have been scattered Jews and proselytes (like the Ethiopian Eunuch). The Apostles had command of every language represented.

  11. 11. PENTECOST (2) 2:41-47 The early church possessed four qualities (in abundance): 1 Apostolic Teaching (42-43) 2 Mutual Fellowship (44-45) 3 Constant Edification (46) 4 Exponential Growth (47)
  12. 12. THEMES Christianity isn’t a new innovation but instead the proper fulfillment ofIsrael’s religion and responsibilitytowards God.
