Of all the themes and motifs encountered in the book, arguably the most important is discipleship. Rabbis, earlier than and contemporaneous with Jesus, invited folks to “follow” them. To become a disciple meant not only knowing the tradition and how to challenge and transform it; the mentor rabbi had to be convinced that a student had what it took to do what the rabbi did. In Acts, discipleship works. Peter and Paul and company preach and teach and heal and resuscitate, just as Jesus had done (see for instance 3:7; 5:15; 9:34, 40, etc.).
All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
