In an essay of at least 875 words, analyze the thematic development of this first movement of the book of Acts. While this is not an exclusive list, be sure to address the following elements:
1. How does this segment develop the theme of the geographical/ethnic advance of the proclamation of the gospel presented in the key verse of the book, Acts 1:8? Trace the development of this theme through this section of Acts.
2. What other major themes are developed in Acts 1–7 (of the themes identified by Fowler in his video presentation “The Key Themes of Acts”)? Trace the development of each theme as applicable.
3. Luke records four of Peter’s evangelistic addresses in this section: his sermon on Pentecost (2:14–40), his sermon following the healing of the lame man at the Beautiful Gate (3:12–26), and his testimony in his two appearances before the Sanhedrin (4:8–12; 5:29–32). Read these and compare them; identify the core elements that Peter considered non-negotiable in his preaching of the gospel.
4. What are the primary, recurring themes in Stephen’s speech to the Sanhedrin? How are these themes developed by Stephen? How does Stephen’s speech fit thematically into this movement of the book of Acts?
