Anne,

Acts was written about 65 to 70 A.D. by Luke the physcian.  The time spand covers from the ascension of Christ to Paul be imprisioned in Rome.  Hope that helps.

My current favorite is that I am a "Freelance Monotheist."

There is usually not a lot of frivolous discussion after that.

Anne,
I asked Terry what he thought about being called a 'Christian' and he said that he didn't like being called that due to all of it's negative connotations.  He said that he would rather be called a 'believer in Yeshua and in Adonai the father'. He says that the term 'Nazarites and believers' are the names used in Acts, and that it was Rome (Constantine) whom held the first 'Christ Mass"when he had combined paganism w/ Judaism and called it 'Christianty'; thus Catholicism came from this.

I do not like being called a 'Christian' either.  There are over a billion christians in the world and the other 5 billion people in the world todaywho are not christians understand the word "christian" to mean far less than moral and biblical prinipals that I want to be known for.

hope this helps :)
