This article explores four crucial themes in the early Christian narrative of the Acts of the Apostles that continue to be important for the church's identity and mission and therefore also for preaching. The four themes addressed are the meaning of the Ascension for Luke's understanding of true witness, various dimensions of the significance of Pentecost, Luke's presentation of early Christian solidarity by means of shared possessions and Luke's presentation of the ministry of Jesus in its totality as a divine proclamation of peace.
