Ac 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication. The latter clause is omitted in the Revised Version. They were waiting for the "promise of the Father" (Ac 1:4), and the time was spent in worship.

    11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
    12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

    Ray; There is NO Book of the Bible that is "confused." God is Not the Author of confusion. The Book of the Acts of the Apostles is not a "transitional" book. It was written, along with the Evangel Narrative, to give the completed Testimony to the High Priest, Theophilus; according to the Law, that the Testimony of the Sacred Writings be kept with the Priests, on behalf of the children of Israel.
  • Ray321
    I find the book of Act's, the most confused books of all times. But is not confusing. What happening in this book is lots of changes. It's a transitional book not a doctrinal book . The big change was when Stephen got stone, Jesus sat back down. It almost happen, the tribulation. Now, we are in the grace age which was kept a secret until Apostle Paul revealed it. Wow, that is awesome.
  • Ray321
    A disciple and bruce, for you to understand Apostle Paul's episode, Romans through Philemon, you will have to give up your tradition of religion and follow Paul's episode. I used to be in your shoes guys. I Pray to God to open your eyes and ears for direction. I have no more to say but pray for you guys. Good luck and God bless you.
  • Ray321
    Men today are caught up in tradition where it is hard to understand Apostle Paul's episode. Matthew 11:10 Jesus said, for this is he , of whom it is written , Behold, I send you my messenger before thy face , which shall prepare thy way before thee. Jesus was telling the Disiples that Apostle Paul will be the messenger for him. Jesus had chosen Paul for Gentiles. It's all there in the Bible. See.
