This is a fascinating, multi-dimensional deep dive of Luke's Acts historically, politically and geographically harmonized among the Epistles. Theological considerations and opinion are absent. Addressed here are:
- archaeology, Roman Imperial records, and comparisons, differences and implications among our various oldest extant transcriptions that comprise the NT.
- comparison to extant Syriac, Christian, Jewish and Roman contemporary non-biblical sources
- Paul's patterns considered in travel among and between Roman Imperial and Provincial governance
- fast shifting and situational regional boundaries that illuminate Paul's missionary logic
- stiff academic response and criticism to numerous less literal opinions that dismiss Luke as historian extraordinaire
- fascinating old-but new insight into the relationships in time, place, authorship and ethnicity among the Inspired books of the NT canon
I'll leave what I considered the most fascinating 'Wows" to the next readers as needless to say, you will indeed find tidbits that you've never noticed or failed to connect made clear in the most interesting and microscopic ways. I'll not read the NT books the same again. This is a framework and foundational basis to consider your further explorations.
It's a remarkable modern masterpiece from 1895 and a must read. The writing reflects the morphing of the English language in just 100 years. It’s a fascinating wonder IMHO.
