Bible Book Overviews
Bible Book OverviewsSteve Gregg

In his overview of the book of Acts, Steve Gregg outlines the four main sections of the book and their corresponding themes. The first section focuses on the early church in Jerusalem, with Peter as the main character, while the second section shifts to the missionary activities and arrest of Paul. The third section covers Paul's three separate missionary journeys, and the fourth section ends with Paul in Rome waiting for trial. Throughout the book, the early church initially consisted of the twelve apostles and three thousand converts, and highlights key events such as Peter's vision regarding Gentiles and the Jerusalem Council to settle the controversy over Gentile converts being circumcised.
