    I have three really. Not to shortchange the others but these have particular personal meaning to me. First the Psalms. I think it isn’t possible to really understand the Psalms until you’ve suffered—and then there is no other part of the Bible tha. First, although D. A. Carson and Douglas Moo note that both Luke and Acts are anonymous, the prologue to Luke-Acts alludes to an author who is well educated, not an apostle, versed in the Old Testament, and knowledgeable of first century society, which all align with a current understanding of Luke.

    The purpose of the book of Acts is governed by the Jews response to Peter and Paul. Luke recorded three rejections by the Jews to Peter and the apostles associated with him to the message of repentance and proclamation of the kingdom. In the latter portion of Acts, Luke recorded three rejections of the Jews to Paul’s overtures of salvation.   Jerusalem and the “We” Sections in Acts J Posted by Lee in "We" Sections, Luke's Writing Style. trackback. I have been reading through the “we” sections in Acts. Here, I offer a theory of why Luke included these sections in the first person. (Inherently, this theory asserts that Luke was writing first-hand, and not working from another’s travel journal.).

Luke-Acts, Theology of. The initial verses of both the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts indicate they were written to an otherwise unknown person named Theophilus.

Paul’s deep respect and Christian love for Luke surface when he refers to him as “the beloved physician.” A physician of Luke’s day could work with body and mind, though not in the sense of a modern surgeon. But Luke was interested in people’s well-being; this is evident in his writings.

An old saying fits with Luke’s outlook: “A. Todd Penner is the author of numerous essays on the Acts of the Apostles, including the book In Praise of Christian Origins: Stephen and the Hellenists in Lukan Apologetic Historiography (Bloomsbury, ).

With Caroline Vander Stichele, he co-wrote Contextualizing Gender in Early Christian Discourse: Thinking beyond Thecla, and, most recently, he has co-authored, with. A Theology of Luke and Acts is a very readable biblical theology of Luke-Acts.

Bock has done a great job synthesizing the biblical theological themes that no doubt run through his commentaries. Though not a commentary, this is an essential book along side Bock's, or any other commentators book on Luke and Acts, as it gives the reader the big Cited by: 2.

And, when the Book of Acts begins, he carefully outlines what he has written in the Book of Luke, as I read already: “In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach until the day when he was taken up from us.” That’s exactly what the Book of Luke is about.

Problems with Luke as the Author of Luke In my previous post I gave the logic that can be adduced for thinking that the Third Gospel was probably written by Luke, the gentile physician who was a companion of Paul for part of his missionary journeys. Of the 7, verses in the New Testament, Luke-Acts comprises 2, verses, or percent.

The book of Acts contains three sub-arguments, seen throughout the text, to support its conclusion: That both Peter and Paul's defenses - for the Jews - were ultimately rejected - that the promise of God remained for the Jews - despite having crucified the Messiah - (By Peter in Acts 2, 4, 5, etc; By Paul in Act 13).

The gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles make up a two-volume work which scholars call Luke–Acts. Together they account for % of the New Testament, the largest contribution by a single author, providing the framework for both the Church's liturgical calendar and the historical outline into which later generations have fitted their idea of the story of Jesus.

These two works were authored by Luke, a Gentile believer (Colossians ). A comment in contention against this answer about early attestation of Luke's gospel in 1 Tim being 1st century from Paul himself (where Paul would be referring to Luke's gospel as "Scripture") made one argument that: [Paul] was the master and Luke only his disciple - citing one's pupil like this would lessen Paul's perceived authority.

The comment elicited my question. And the book of Acts is about being witnesses - witnesses to Jesus (you will be my witnesses) – think of Stephen, and Peter, and Paul. Witnessing is a forbidding word, isn’t it. But in Acts it is simply telling a story – the story of Jesus, the story of how Jesus has changed someone’s life, changed a whole community.
