Persecution for being a Christ follower. Can you imagine? Why would someone do this to another? Since Acts 4, persecution is what many Christ followers have encountered. Why? When you make the claim that salvation is found in no one else but Christ, some will disagree, some will reject you, and some will do worse. What's your claim about Christ?

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.
