The book ends with the apostles Barnabas and Saul continuing to preach the gospel in different parts of the world.

  • 00:00:00 In the book of Acts, chapter one, theophilus is told about what Jesus began to do and teach until the day he ascended to heaven. After his Ascension, Jesus appeared to the apostles from time to time and proved to them that he was alive. He also talked to them about the kingdom of God. One of these meetings happened after Jesus ate a meal with the apostles. He told them not to leave Jerusalem until the father sends them what he promised. The father set those dates and they are not for the apostles to know. When the holy spirit came upon the apostles, they were able to speak in other languages. Some jews from Jerusalem were present when they heard the sound and came running to see what it was. They were bewildered to hear their own languages being spoken by the believers. After the apostles were filled with the holy spirit, they were able to preach in other languages. Finally, after they had been preaching for some time, they chose Matthias to replace Judas.

Peter goes on to say that what they are seeing is predicted centuries ago by the prophet Joel, and that anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Many in the crowd were convicted by Peter's words and decided to turn from their sins and turn to God. They were then baptized and added to the church.

  • 00:25:00 Seven men, chosen by Jesus Christ Himself, were put in charge of the distribution of food in Jerusalem. The apostles, who were spending their time preaching and teaching instead of administering the food program, were pleased with the idea. Stephen, Philip, Nicholas, Prominence, Nyquener, Tymon, and Nicholas all became Christians as a result of this. Stephen's face became as bright as an angel, and he performed many miracles. However, one day some men from the synagogue of freed slaves, as it was called, accused Stephen of blasphemy. The crowd became enraged, and the elders and teachers of religious law arrested Stephen and brought him before the high council. The lying witnesses said that Stephen always spoke against the temple and the law of Moses. Stephen replied that his glorious God had appeared to Abraham in Mesopotamia before he moved to Haran, and had told him to leave his birthplace and come to the land He would show him. Pharaoh appointed a governor over all of Egypt and put Joseph in charge of all of Pharaoh's affairs. However, a famine came upon Egypt and the people were in great misery. God told Abraham that his descendants would live in a foreign country, where they would be mistreated as slaves for four hundred years. However,

However, a new king comes to the throne of Egypt who does not know about Joseph, and he plots against the Israelites. Moses is born a beautiful child and is raised by Pharaoh's daughter. He is taught all the wisdom of the Egyptians and becomes mighty in both speech and action. One day, while he is 40 years old, he decides to visit his relatives in Israel. While there, he sees an Egyptian treating a man of Israel poorly, and Moses comes to the man's defense and kills the Egyptian. This leads to a series of conflicts with the Israelites, in which Moses is often met with hostility. Eventually, God sends Moses into exile in Babylon. Moses' ancestors carried the tabernacle with them through the wilderness, and it was used there until the time of King David. David requests the privilege of building a permanent temple for God, but it is Solomon who actually builds it. God tells Solomon that he is able to build a dwelling place for him, but humans are never able to create something as good as heaven or earth. The Lord also asks Solomon if he could ever build him a temple as
  • 00:35:00 This passage from the book of Isaiah describes a man who is led to his death without protest. When Philip asks the man what he is reading, the man replies that he doesn't know, since there is no one to instruct him.

This news quickly spreads throughout the town, and many believers convert to Christianity. Peter stays in Caesarea for some time, preaching and helping the disciples.

  • 00:50:00 The video discusses Acts 11, in which Cornelius and his disciples come to Peter in Jerusalem to report that God has chosen them to spread the news of Jesus' resurrection to the Gentiles. When Peter arrives, some of Cornelius' Jewish followers criticize him for entering into a Gentile home and eating with them. Peter responds that what happened was a result of prayer, not of impurity. The video then goes on to describe how the Holy Spirit fell on the believers when they heard Peter's message and how Cornelius' objections were answered.

  • 01:20:00 Paul and Silas traveled through several towns, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. The people of each town were receptive to the message, but the leaders of each town were jealous and attempted to stop the missionaries. In Thessalonica, the Jewish leaders captured and beat Jason and some of the believers, thinking they had found Paul and Silas. When they found out they were wrong, they released Jason and the believers, and Paul and Silas traveled to Berea. There, the people were more open-minded and were receptive to Paul's message.
