The Book of Acts is also known as the Acts of the apostles or the Acts of the Holy Spirit. Luke wrote the Book of Acts as a sequel to his account of the life of Jesus Christ in the Book of Luke. Luke told the story of Jesus from the standpoint that Jesus Christ was 100% human being. He was all man, just like us. In the Bible Jesus is mentioned first as a baby, then at the age of twelve when he stayed behind in the temple conversing with the scholars, then at the age of 30 when his ministry began. He spent his whole life preparing for a ministry that lasted less than four years. The first thing he did, when he began his ministry, was go to John the Baptist and ask to be baptized by him. Next he was led into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil where he fasted and prayed for 40 days. He did all of this before he even chose his disciples. He was passionate about us as we should be about him.
