Theophilus, the first scroll I wrote concerned everything Jesus did and taught from the beginning, right up to the day when he was taken up into heaven. Before he was taken up, working in the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus instructed the apostles he had chosen. After his suffering, he showed them that he was alive with many convincing proofs. He appeared to them over a period of forty days, speaking to them about God’s kingdom. While they were eating together, he ordered them not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for what the Father had promised. He said, “This is what you heard from me: John baptized with water, but in only a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 1:1-5, CEB)
Luke was Acts Volume 1, or is Acts Luke Volume 2?
Interesting that those who decided on the books in the canon (Bible) decided to separate the 2 by John.
But, Luke tells of the stories of Jesus while he was here on earth and Acts gives the story of the disciples after Jesus went back to be with God. But now how could Jesus go to be with God if/since he is God (that is a post for another time).
We just need to know the stories, much like we know our families’ stories that were never written down. They are a part of who we are, just as Luke and Acts and all the rest of the books are a part of our story.
Know your story and share the love.
