Last time in Part 1 we did some background on Luke, and the two books that he wrote… the gospel of Luke, and the Acts of the Apostles. Today we will complete our examination of the Acts of the Apostles and then look at some statements from Paul in his epistles to see if they support or contradict early church history. Next time in part 3… we will see what happened historically and theologically to the doctrines of the church upon the death of the first generation of Apostles, who replaced them and why.
