The Drama of Obedience
Passage: Acts 1:1–3
In Acts 1:1-3 we see Luke continuing his historical and investigative narrative to Theophilus so that he might understand the certainty of the things he has been taught concerning Jesus and the apostles.
The Promise of the Holy Spirit
 In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach,  until the day when he was taken up, after he had given commands through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen.  He presented himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God. (ESV)
