In Acts 1:8 the risen Christ states the purpose of the baptism with the Holy Spirit. This book written by Luke the physician and universally accepted of him as the author, begins by referring to a ‘former treatise” which is taken to indicate a first installment of the same historical volume, addressed to the same person 1 Theophilus’ This expression is used by modern scholar to indicate the singleness of the work. The theme ‘But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you” and ‘ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth: By location and emphasis, this verse seems clearly to designate the purpose of this book of the Acts of the Apostles. The book is a special history of the establishment and extension of the Church among Jews and Gentiles by the gradual location of centers of influence at salient points in the Roman Empire from Jerusalem to Rome.

Furthermore, Luke arranged this historic material in such a way that the progress of  the Gospel is immediately evident. It is distinctly a schematic history- designed to edify no less than to narrate.  Hence we may view the Acts as an historical sermon on Christian power, its source and its effect. The source is Pentecost -given baptism with the Holy Spirit, and the effect is the power to witness to Christ in the world. This witness is presented in epitome in Peter is Pentecostal sermon to the members of the Dispersion gathered at Jerusalem and in progressive detail throughout the remainder of the book.
