Luke, a Gentile physician and leader in the early church, really wanted his friend Theophilus to come to saving faith in Jesus. As an educated man, he took it upon himself to write “an orderly account” (Luke 1:6) of the life of Christ (the book of Luke) and the early church (the book of Acts).
This two-volume set displays the “perpendicularity” of the Gospel. A right relationship with God through Jesus (vertical) necessarily results in reconciled relationships with people and the spread of the Gospel throughout the world (horizontal).
Our hope and prayer in this series is that your vertical relationship with Jesus will impact your horizontal relationships with others and that the Gospel will reach the ends of the Earth again, just like it did the first time, nearly 2000 years ago!
