Exposition of the Acts of the Apostles.
Luke’s purpose in writing Acts is certainly not just to compile a continuous chronicle of the progress of the early church. His narrative is far too selective for that. Even though Acts 1v2 makes it clear that this is “the Acts of the (Twelve) Apostles”, the book concentrates on Peter and Paul. And even regarding these two amazing men, there are omissions galore, for instance Paul recalls that “thrice I suffered shipwreck” (2 Cor 11v25), yet not one of these scarifying experiences is even hinted at in Acts. Again, it is possible to infer from the well known “we” passages that at certain times Luke himself was with Paul in the course of his missionary work. Yet these are only very indirect references which the author makes to himself. And his brother Titus who worked with Paul more than anyone else did, is excluded from the record altogether.
