It is almost universally agreed that the author of Acts also wrote the [[Gospel of Luke]]. The traditional view is that the two books were written about the year 60 by a companion of Paul named [[Apostle Luke|Luke]].
==Liturgical reading==In the Orthodox Church, Acts is the first part of the [[Apostolos]], a [[Liturgical books|liturgical book]] containing the various Apostolic Readings. Acts is read liturgically from [[Pascha]] through [[Pentecost]]. Selections of Acts are also read at other feasts of the Church, [[Apostle Stephen the Protomartyr| St. Stephen's]] Day, and the [[Beheading of St. John the Forerunner|Beheading of the Forerunner, and Baptist John]]. It is also the custom of the Church to read the book of Acts over the tomb of Christ on [[Holy Friday]], and over the body of a deceased priest at the wake prior to his burial.
