Some questions based on Acts 1:1-11

Here is the sermon these questions are linked to: The ascension… So what?!

  1. Do we know anything about who wrote Acts and to whom it was written, and why? if so what, and does it matter much?
  2. What do we know about the time that Jesus spent with His disciples during that period of 40 days after the Crucifixion (from this account and others)
  3. What do the disciples mean by restoring the kingdom? (cf Ezekiel 38ff, Isaiah60ff, Matthew 13, Revelation 19ff)
  4. How far away did Jesus go, and why did He have to go?
  5. What does the bible tell us about Christ’s return and the significance of the Mount of Olives?
  6. How does a good understanding of the ascension help us in our Christian walk?
