There are almost four times as many references to the Spirit in Acts as in Luke’s gospel. Although many of these texts are descriptions of people as Spirit-filled or Spirit-directed, the increase shows how the Spirit is now active in the community Jesus formed and how the coming of the promise enables the community to carry out its mission. The Spirit is now widely distributed across the whole of the community, not just in a few people as earlier.
