uplifting thoughts and inspiration on faith
Apostolic meaning of, relating to, deriving from, or contemporary with the Apostles, the original twelve disciples of Jesus Christ, of or relating to the teachings or practice of the Apostles. The book of Acts or the Acts of the Apostles tells us about what happened after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Acts was written by Luke the physician, a gentile. Luke is credited with being the only gentile writer of a book of the Bible. The gospel of Luke and the book of the Acts of the Apostles is actually one book, volumes 1 and 2. In the New Testament Luke and Acts are not presented in consecutive order but have the book of John between them. This is because Luke’s gospel is included in the Synoptic Gospels, or gospels containing the life of Jesus, so it was decided at some point to keep it together with Matthew and Mark, the other two Synoptic writers.
