The Acts of the Apostles talks about the Roman Empire.
The fifth book in the New Testament is the Acts of the Apostles. It was written around 60 AD by Luke, a Greek physician and author of the Gospel which shares his name. Like his Gospel, the Acts of the Apostles is addressed to a Greek man named Theophilus, and is a sequel to the first book.
Luke tells us of Jesus' ascension into Heaven, the coming of the Holy Spirit and the subsequent spreading of Jesus' message throughout the Roman Empire and the growth of the early Church. The story, which covers a period of 30 years, sees Jesus' followers, or Christians, grow to an enormous number, and spread from their origins in Jerusalem to the distant city of Rome.
