The Holy Spirit and Power in Luke-Acts and their Significance for Christian Service

Abstract

Most scholars accept the Gospel of Luke and Acts of the Apostles as a single volume and Luke is generally believed to be the author. Luke’s interest in the Holy Spirit is remarkable. This paper undertakes the exegesis of the texts on the Holy Spirit and Power in Luke-Acts.  It is most likely Luke made a kind of distinction between Holy Spirit and power in some texts of Luke-Acts. Both, it seems are separable and are of God for the empowerment of His people for service. There is therefore the need for the re- reading of those texts. However, the paper does not lose sight of the significance of the Holy Spirit and power for empowerment for service.


Keywords: Holy Spirit, Power, Empowerment, Significance, Pentecost.
