Dearest Theophilus,

You have read the testimony of Jesus Christ, of the good works done among us, as testified in thee gospel. Things got a little shaky there towards the end, but how about that finish?! You have also read of the account of the Apostles and their teachings, how they received the spirit and proceeded to spread the good news throughout the world. And then you struggled through the seemingly endless journey to nowhere until the book finally….ended? Really, that was the end?

Ok, ok…but this next chapter, this one you’re really going to like! Theophilus, I bring you:
