The entire Book of the Acts of the Apostles records the effect of the gospel when it comes fairly in contact with the minds of people. The gospel was addressed to every class. It met the Jew and the Gentile, the bond and the free, the learned and the ignorant, the rich and the poor, and it showed its power everywhere in subduing the mind to itself.

        Below are a few quotes from the book: Moreover, Paul calls these boasting antagonists “false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.” Then he directly identifies them as ministers of Satan who disguise themselves as angels of light and ministers of righteousness but falsely so ([2 Cor.] ).   Nevertheless in the imperfect nature of the book there is a perfect system.

      The 12 apostles were Jews, uneducated commoners, and simple men of faith who gave up everything to be followers of Christ. Jesus spent three years training these disciples to be leaders. Jesus Author: Allyson Holland. The apostles suffered incredible persecution and died horrible deaths in the Christian cause. The only possible explanation for their zeal was that they had actually seen, talked with and eaten with the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ.
