The Importance of Places in Acts

Have you ever wondered why Luke chose to record a nearly endless list of places in the book of Acts? The answer is in his Gospel’s opening words, spoken by the risen Christ: “You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8 ESV). By recording specific places in Acts, Luke is attesting to the fulfillment of Jesus’ words.

With Logos, you can quickly track down all of the places in Acts—and then see whether Paul traveled by himself or with a specific ministry companion.

    When I clicked on the LN 93.405 it does not show the Greek-English Lexicon of the NT based on Semantic Domain on the option to Open widow. I am using Logos 7 Gold.
