Product Information

Fortner walks through the book of Acts verse by verse to offer up a commentary on the apostles following the ascension of Jesus.

An Excerpt:

"3. FAITHFUL BUT FALLIBLE LEADERS

Acts 1:12-26 covers a brief waiting period (about one
week) between the ascension of Christ and the
outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost.
The things that are recorded here were written by
Luke, by divine inspiration, for our learning and
admonition. If we are wise, we will lay them to heart.

First, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST FULFILLED
EVERY PROPHECY OF THE OLD TESTAMENT
SCRIPTURES RELATING TO HIS INCARNATION,
LIFE, EARTHLY MINISTRY, CRUCIFIXION,
RESURRECTION, AND ASCENSION (v. 12). When
Luke tells us that the disciples returned from the mount
called Olivet to Jerusalem, he is, almost casually,
telling us that Christ stood upon Mt. Olivet when he
ascended to heaven, just like the prophet Zechariah
said he would (Zech. 14:4; Ezek. 11:23). The mount
had been divided in two parts by a great earthquake in
the days of Uzziah. Our Lord ascended from that part
of it which was near Bethany (Luke 24:50). It was there
that he began his sufferings (Luke 22:39). It was most
fitting therefore that he should cast off the reproach of
his sufferings there by his glorious ascension."
