Luke prepares the way for the Samaritan mission in the Book of Acts with several references to Samaria and Samaritans in the gospel that bears his name. Luke–Acts also shows that the true God is faithful and can be trusted completely.

Luke-Acts and the Jews: Conflict, Apology, and rs Press: Atlanta, Georgia, In addressing the problem of Luke's perspectives on the relation between non-believing Jews and believers (both Jews and gentiles), I am adding my voice to a growing chorus of scholars who are protesting the notion that Luke depicts the triumph of gentile Christianity at the.

1 Three days after arriving in the province, Festus went up from Caesarea to Jerusalem, 2 where the chief priests and the Jewish leaders appeared before him and presented the charges against Paul. 3 They requested Festus, as a favor to them, to have Paul transferred to Jerusalem, for they were preparing an ambush to kill him along the way.

A comparison between Luke-Acts and Greco-Roman or Hellenistic Jewish historical narratives has been a common practice in Lukan studies.

We are back to the “hidden Messiah” theme. So far, we have been dealing with the Second Temple extra biblical sources. We have seen that, by the turn of the era, the pattern was already set: a transcendent messiah was to be hidden in heaven till the appointed time came – “For the Son of Man was concealed from the beginning ; then he revealed him to the holy ones and the elect ones.”.
