The Book of Acts is of Dispensational importance. It describes how the great changeover took place, when God set aside the nation of Israel and reached out to gather a Gentile people for His name (the Church). Here we find the process of Christianity displacing Jusaism, the Church replacing the Temple and the Synagogue, and worldwide blessing overtaking national privilege.
The Book of Acts is of Historical importance. It documents the giving of the Holy Spirit in His ministry as "the Comforter" and "the Indweller." It provides a vivid account of the actual birth of the Church at Pentecost. It pictures the movement of the infant Church from a Jewish context to a Gentile context. ANd it portrays the importance of witnessing, the process of worldwide evangelization.
