Study of the Book of Acts - Part 2

(Acts 1:8b) "…Ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." These early chapters of the Book of Acts detail for us the development of God's program for the setting aside of Israel and the establishment of the church. There are spiritual principles given in these chapters which apply to believers today, but we must be careful to avoid basing any doctrine upon these events. The teaching of Christian doctrine for the body of Christ is to be found in the epistles. With these things in mind we will begin our study.
