The portrait of Jesus in the acts of the Apostles first attracted me to the study of this important New Testament writing. But before long I began to realize that it was necessary to consider also God the Father and the Holy Spirit in order to fill out the picture of who Jesus is and what he did. So in the early stages of research it became a trinitarian study. I have heard it said on more than one occasion that there is no affirmation of the Trinity in the New Testament. The present study attempts to show, by closely examining every statement about Father, Son and Holy Spirit in Acts, that there is an awareness of the problem of the Trinity in the Acts of the Apostles and an attempt to give some kind of an answer.
