Both are Hellenistic Jews and neither is numbered among the Yet Stephen is the first martyr and his speech summarizing some important theological points in the transition between Peter’s ministry in . Many consider the gospel of Matthew to be one of the most "Jewish" texts of the New Testament. Luke-Acts, on the other hand, has traditionally been viewed as a very "Greek" and Gentile-Christian text. Isaac W. Oliver challenges this dichotomy, reading Matthew and Luke-Acts not only against their Jewish "background" but as early Jewish literature.

    The Holy Spirit chose Luke, the beloved physician, to write one of the four Records of the earthly ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ; and also the Book of Acts, the Acts of the Holy Spirit and the apostles. The Christian who really desires to know the Bible should diligently study Luke’s Gospel a. The book has been called "The Acts of the Apostles," really a misnomer because Acts has very little to say concerning most of the original Twelve Apostles. Peter's activities are described at some length, and John and Philip are mentioned, but more than half of the book is about Paul and his connection with the Christian movement.

    The narrative of Luke-Acts has a powerful poignancy, so much so that some scholars designate it as a tragedy. 6 The author shows that the Christian message is the fulfillment of the Hebrew Scriptures and intended initially for Jews. Despite this, Jews rejected this message and so lived without the salvation that Jesus brought for them and for. Dale C.
