Acts of the Apostles: Chapters 1-19

Michael Tunnicliffe

For his second volume, Luke gives an account of the early church and the spread of Christianity. Beginning with the likes of Peter, John, and Stephen in Jerusalem he gradually widened, his scope to missionaries like Philip and, above all, Paul. It is the only “church history” work in the New Testament and so is an invaluable primary source. We will look at how and why he tells the story the way he does, of the place of early Christianity in the social worlds of the first-century Greco-Roman period, and what the archaeology of many of the sites can tell us
