The Catholic Study Bible A special version of the New American Bible, with a wealth of background information useful to Catholics.

An Outline of Acts

  • Preparation for the Christian Mission ( 1, 1–2, 13 ). This section includes all of the events between Easter and the first missionary sermon that Peter preaches on Pentecost.

  • The Mission in Jerusalem ( 2, 14–8, 3 )

  • Mission in Judea and Samaria ( 8, 4–9, 43 ). The gospel begins to spread into areas around Jerusalem.

  • Inauguration of the Gentile Mission ( 10, 1–15, 35 ). These chapters set the stage for the mission of Paul by showing that the Gentile mission began from Jerusalem itself.

  • Paul's Mission to the Ends of the Earth ( 15, 36–28, 31 ). Paul now fulfills the mission that God gave him by carrying the gospel throughout the Roman empire from Jerusalem to Rome itself.

Now it is time to read through each section of Acts in detail. We will be looking to see how Luke describes the development of the early church. Even though the apostles do not always know where God is leading, they remain open to the Spirit. Even though the apostles experience hostility and some deaths, they never cease to tell people about Jesus. God has shown them that Jesus came to be the savior for all the nations of the world.
