“ ‘This Jesus God raised up, and of that all of us are witnesses. Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this that you both see and hear’ ” (Acts 2:32, 33, NRSV).
Ellen G. White says that the “whole book of Acts is our lesson book.”1 It shares the colorful miracles, signs, and wonders that accompanied the preaching and teaching of the apostles. It is an inspirational history book written “under the direction of the Holy Spirit.”2 Inspiration is the light that made the apostles such heavy but practical theologians. – 1.
