The title of the book of Acts comes from the Greek word praxis, a word often used in early Christian literature to describe the great deeds of the apostles or other significant believers. The author of the Acts of the Apostles is the same author of the Gospel of Luke. Both books are addressed to Theophilus, and the latter (Acts) refers to the former (Luke). Luke the Physician was the author of Luke-Acts. The main purposes of the book appear to be: To present a history, give defense as well as (Apologetics) guide the believer, and to depict the triumph of Christianity in the face of bitter persecution. The Early church began when 3,000 converts repented of their sins, being baptized in the name of Jesus, and followed the Apostles teachings or doctrine. You'll love this reading.
