Publisher's Description

The Teach the Text Commentary Series utilizes the best of biblical scholarship to provide the information a pastor needs to communicate the text effectively. The carefully selected preaching units and focused commentary allow pastors to quickly grasp the big idea and key themes of each passage of Scripture. Each unit of the commentary includes the big idea and key themes of the passage and sections dedicated to understanding, teaching, and illustrating the text.

The book of Acts is theological history, showing how Jesus's crucifixion and resurrection informed the life, teaching, and ministry of the early church. God's power is displayed through the Spirit in the outward spread and influence of the gospel. We see how God's Old Testament promises are fulfilled in the church, composed of both Jews and Gentiles. It is an open-ended story, so its history and theology are needed for the life and mission of the church today.
