Luke’s gospel is the longest book in the New Testament. And when you consider it along with the other book that he wrote, namely the Acts of the Apostles, Luke is responsible for over a quarter of New Testament material. Luke was one of Paul’s most significant companions and several things about him help us understand why God laid His hand upon this man.

At the start of the Acts we find the church at a critical point in its history. Jesus has been with the disciples, teaching them God’s truth and preparing them for their ministry. Now he has to leave them so that the next part of the plan for God’s kingdom can happen – the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Today’s study captures the fear and excitement of experiencing God’s outworking plan.
