I. Introduction (1:1–2:47)

Luke here describes the formation of the Christian community as a new covenant community experiencing a radical new life of relationship with God through the gift of the Holy Spirit. The rest of Acts portrays the witness and impact of this community upon the world; first, upon the world of the Jews, and second, upon the larger Roman-Hellenistic world.
