The book of Acts is written by Luke around AD 62 mostly before this date. This date is set due to the fact that Paul's trial was in AD 62. Persecution under Nero (AD 64), Paul's death (AD 68) nor the destruction of Jerusalem (AD 70) is mentioned in this book. The book ends abruptly with Paul under house arrest awaiting trial in Rome (28:16,30-31). This may indicate that the book was written before Paul’s trial and eventual release. The dates for Paul’s first imprisonment in Rome are 60-62 A.D.
KEY VERSE: Acts 1:8
