Luke was a physician and he wrote not only the Book of Luke but he also continued onward to write the Book of Acts. I love when Luke moves forward in comparison to the other three Gospels as he explains more eyewitness accounts into the forty days before Christ’s ascension into Heaven. We read that Jesus fulfilled the promise of the Holy Spirit descending upon His disciples on the day of Pentecost. A twelfth disciple is chosen to fulfill the role that Judas fell from due to suicide and sifting, and majority of the rest of Acts follows Peter’s Ministry. We see Stephen as the first martyr to pass being spoken about, and during these few chapters Saul gets introduced and will become known as Apostle Paul. Throughout Acts, Luke breaks down different evangelistic opportunities that Apostle Peter he fired in order to continue spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ, which is built upon faith and establishing a firm foundation in Christ in order to receive salvation.
