Abstract

This study surveys major attempts to understand the structure of Acts and proposes a structure based upon insights gained from textual markers in the text and the significant role of the Holy Spirit. Building upon the work of a number of others, including Roger Stronstad in particular, this article proposes that the primary theme that holds the document together is the charismatic and/or the prophetic activity of the Holy Spirit. Accordingly, the proposal offered takes account of a full spectrum of defining emphases in Acts: the major individuals in Acts, the book’s emphasis upon missionary expansion, the literary markers in the text, and the strategic role of the Holy Spirit throughout the narrative.
