Summary of Acts

Date: 75-85 C.E.

Description: Acts, being the second half of the composition known as Luke-Acts, narrates the activities and the spread of the first generation of Jesus followers in the decades following his life. Special attention is given to the activity and relationships between believers and Peter and Paul which may indicate an apologetic angle to the book to defend both in the wake of early controversies in their respective communities.
