Orthodox Lutheran Father Quote of the Day

Acts consists of twenty-eight chapters, and it can be divided into two principal parts. The first contains the general history of those things that were common to the entire college of the apostles. The latter reveals the account of certain apostles specifically – namely, of Peter, Paul and Philip, but especially of Paul, whose inseparable companion was the author of this book. It clearly explains Paul’s miraculous calling, Baptism, sermons, journeys, miracles, and persecutions.
