Acts of the Apostles The good news can be summarized in many ways, reflecting various emphases.
Cambridge New Testament scholar C. Dodd   has summarized the Christian good news as taught by the apostle Peter in the Book of Acts see Kerygma ; Acts 2: The Age of Fulfillment has dawned, the "latter days" foretold by the prophets.

Snyder writes, "God's plan for the [worldwide] church extends to the fullest extent of the cosmos. By God's 'manifold wisdom' the [worldwide] Church displays an early fullness of what Christ will accomplish at the conclusion of all the ages.
