The Ecclesiology of Acts

Journal Article

This article examines the ecclesiology of Acts by considering the political shape of Acts vis-a-vis the wider Roman world. The discussion of three scenes in Acts shows that there is a profound and productive tension at the heart of Acts' theological vision. This tension generates the distinctive Christian politics that is Acts' ecclesiology: a public witness to Jesus Christ in a world that did not know him.
