The book of Acts is the first volume of church history. It records the story of the church from its explosive beginning on the Day of Pentecost to the imprisonment at Rome of its greatest missionary. During those three decades, the church expanded from a small group of Jewish believers gathered in Jerusalem to embrace thousands in dozens of congregations throughout the Roman world. In this sequel to Acts 1--12, John MacArthur explores the second half of Acts to show you how God's Spirit empowered, shaped, and refined the church. Join Pastor MacArthur as he searches the pages of the book of Acts to uncover the intricacies of God's Word spoken to His people.
