Tertullian on Acts

Tertullian responding to groups like the Marcionites who rejected the book of Acts gave the following response,
Those who do not accept this volume of Scripture can have nothing to do with the Holy Spirit, for they cannot know whether the Holy Spirit has yet been sent to the disciples; neither can they claim to be the church, since they cannot prove when this body was established or where it was cradled (Prescription against heretics 22).
