Overview

The Acts of the Apostles is the second book written by the biblical writer Luke. Luke continues the story of the risen Jesus who will now extend His reign through the apostles and others to the furthest reaches of the Roman Empire. The story will provide rich insight into the working of God through the Holy Spirit to establish churches in cities large and small and we will see how Peter, Paul and others interacted with a sometimes hostile environment as they proceeded.

We follow the movement of the inaugurated Kingdom of God through this wonderful book. There are many exciting events that provide a sense of the amazement and the challenge of spreading the message of Christ throughout the Empire. The course won’t answer every question we have about the Acts of the Apostles, but we shall follow the journeys where they take us geographically and theologically!

About the Instructor

Nicholas Thomas “Tom” Wright has been named by Christianity Today as one of our time’s top theologians. He is currently professor of New Testament and early Christianity at St. Andrews University. Wright holds a bachelor’s degree in theology, a master’s in Anglican ministry, and a DPhil, all from University of Oxford.

A fellow and chaplain at Cambridge from 1978 to 1981, he then served as assistant professor of New Testament language and literature at McGill University in Montreal. Before becoming a chaplain, tutor, lecturer, and fellow at Oxford in 1986, Wright served as dean of Lichfield Cathedral, canon theologian of Westminster Abbey, and bishop of Durham.

His academic work has usually been published under the name “N. T. Wright,” but works such as What St. Paul Really Said and Simply Christian, aimed at a more popular readership, were published under the less formal name of “Tom Wright.”
