    Paul also told the Athenians that God created the nations and made them finite in duration and territory so that “they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him” (Luke-Acts study guide, Sessions 21 and 22). So there is a natural seeking after God, and people are able to find out some things about Him that way. Part Two covers the theology of Three then briefly concludes with Luke-Acts's place in and contribution to the New Testament canon. Bock has spent the last 30 years in Luke and Acts. Many (myself included) consider his Baker commentaries on each book to be the standard among recent evangelical Luke-Acts works.5/5(3).

    A kingdom for all. Luke documents how Jesus expands God's kingdom and covenant by creating a new Israel that includes the poor, outcasts and others to whom Jesus brings restoration and reverses their life circumstances as He gives them freedom and release from the tyranny of evil and sin. Chapter 5 surveys the use of the word “God” in Luke-Acts with a brief commentary on the significance of each context for understanding God's character and plan. Rather than being a synthesis of these findings, chapter 6 explores related issues, such as the way promise and fulfilment function in Luke-Acts or the way the theme of the kingdom.

The Plan of God in Luke-Acts by John T. Squires Download PDF EPUB FB2

Luke documents how God kept the promise he made to the people of Israel by sending them their long-awaited Messiah, demonstrating that the true God is faithful and can be trusted completely.

Acts and the Gospel of Luke make up a two-part work, Luke–Acts, by the same anonymous author, usually dated to around 80–90 AD. The first part, the Gospel of Luke, tells how God fulfilled his plan for the world's salvation through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, the promised Messiah.
