Eusebius begins his enumeration in the following manner: - "In the first place are to be ranked the sacred four Gospels; then the book of the Acts of the Apostles; after that are to be reckoned the Epistles of Paul. In the next place, that called the First Epistle of John, and.

The gospel according to Acts mentions no temporal salvation benefits. No health, wealth, or a more fulfilling, exciting life not even a relationship with Jesus (even though that is a benefit).

The only earthly benefits listed are spiritual: receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit, and ‘times of refreshing’. Luke-Acts is one Gospel account which tells of the climax of the Bible's overall narrative. These books catalog the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, the savior to whom all of the Old Testament prophecies pointed.

Just as importantly, Luke-Acts also takes great care to point out how Christ fulfilled Old Testament prophecies. T he Book of Acts in the Bible, written around A.D., may be best described as a history of the founding and growth of the early church.

While there are some areas of great detail of the Acts of the Apostles, many times you must use cross references to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John as well as some other epistles in the New Testament to get the full picture of what was.
