Acts II

Readings in The Acts of the Apostles - II

This is the second of two pages of readings Acts. Chapters 13 through 28 are primarily about how Paul spread the gospel through the Roman empire as far as Rome. It contains the stories of Paul's missionary journeys. Look for the "we sections" where Luke is writing about events to which he was an eye witness. Acts ends before Paul's trial in Rome. We do not know if Paul was executed on his first trip to Rome, or set free and executed later. Somescholars think Luke planned a sequel to Acts to finish the story. In just a few minutes a day, you can complete these reading in about four weeks.
