The four Gospels reveal that Jesus is the Messiah and King, God’s Servant, the Son of God, and the Son of Man. The book of Acts, written by Luke, shows us that the ministry of Jesus Christ continues and even grows after His resurrection and His ascension into heaven. The book of Acts can be thought of as the “acts of the apostles” but also as the continuing “acts of Jesus” working though the apostles and the first Christians. A study of the book of Acts reveals a remarkable adventure as Jesus Christ establishes His Church by means of the apostles and early Christians, who are empowered by the Holy Spirit.
God’s Great Covenant, New Testament 2: Acts presents this adventure as the mission of the Church given by Jesus (unit I), guided by the Holy Spirit (unit II), and directed by the “map” of God’s Word (unit III). As the adventure continues, students will see that the early Church had to face internal and external enemies (unit IV) and be properly equipped to spread the gospel (unit V). This book teaches students in fourth grade and up using stories, worksheets, memory verses, quizzes, and regular practical application. Students will find the book of Acts an ancient adventure that continues today and can be embodied in their own lives. This student workbook contains 32 chapters to be completed one per week in a full school year, and is divided into five themed units.
A detailed Teacher’s Edition is also available. It contains a full copy of the student text as well as answer keys and teacher’s notes that supply additional factual information to expand upon the historical, geographical, cultural, and theological concepts introduced in the text.
