I am wanting to see where the writing of the Epistles fit into the timeline of the Book of Acts. Is there a way to do that on the timeline feature or some other way?

You can search the timeline for "written" to get the dates.

Other non-biblical material will show up there. To filter most of them out, you can search by "written book" "written letter" "written epistle"

If you're asking where the epistles fit in relative to specific events within Acts, it's a bit harder to filter the timeline by the book's specific events. The timeline will still give you an idea, but there will be a lot more clutter you'd have to filter out.

You might have better results searching for media that show details about the time period of Acts, although you may have to pencil in the dates when each epistle was written.

Is there a resource or somewhere where I can find out what epistle corresponds with which part of Acts? I ask because I attended a church that was going through Acts, verse by verse, only straying to an Epistle when it came to the point of Acts of when/where that epistle was written.

Hi Jon,

The Faithlife Study Bible has a nice timeline that you might find helpful. I think this resource is still free.
