Riots. Intolerance. Accusations. Scandal. Beatings. Plots. Arrests. Executions. Murder.  

...And out of that, the Church was born.   

The book of Acts is a carefully-recorded history of the explosive spread of the gospel and the rapid growth of the church after Christ’s ascension. In one of the most tumultuous, violent and dramatic books in the entire Bible, Acts starts with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, without which the young church could never have survived the unleashing of rage and prejudice towards these radical followers of The Way. Acts shows how, even in the midst of persecution and opposition, the early believers were able to rely on God’s spirit for direction and divine authority to preach the gospel to all nations.   

Some of the more dramatic touchpoints in Acts include: 

  • The Holy Spirit is given (a mega church is born!) 
  • Two liars drop dead (God means business!) 
  • Stephen is stoned to death (the first martyr!) 
  • An Ethopian is baptized (a Gentile!) 
  • Saul is struck blind (a murderer meets Jesus!) 
  • Peter escapes from jail (with the help of an angel!) 
  • Demons are defanged; magicians are out-miracled! 

Throughout Acts, God shows His infinite power regardless of the circumstances, just as He continues to do today. 

In the MacArthur Bible Study Series, pastor and teacher John MacArthur has undertaken in his definitive style to  provide intriguing examinations of the whole of Scripture.  Each guide incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, explorations of complementary Scripture passages, and probing questions to help you study the Word of God under the guidance of a man whose expository preaching is unparalleled in its breadth and influence.
