When you think of hearing good news, what comes to mind? A job offer? The birth of a baby girl or boy? An answer to prayer? When we read Acts 2:13-41, we see that the good news is the gospel of Jesus Christ. This gospel is what is preached by Peter - it is received by 3000 people and as a result, the church birthed.
The book of Acts is a unique New Testament book in that its main purpose is to record a selective history of the early church following the resurrection of Christ. It is the second part of a two-volume work, with the Gospel of Luke being the first volume. In this series, we look at Luke's account of The Church that Jesus Builds and how it applies to Christ's church that He is building today.
