Last September I began reading the Bible. I think I managed to read Genesis, Exodus, Joshua, Judges, and Ruth before I became distracted by school, a boyfriend, family, line drives, ground balls, the Sadie Hawkins Dance, the Best Buddy’s Club, prom dresses, and other miscellaneous girly stuff. So, I have read some of Acts. I know that Acts is about God and redemption, but I don’t know that I would have discovered that by just reading. The author is said to be Luke, but the author refers to himself as I, so the author, Luke, must be a tradition, not an historical fact. Luke does not mention the destruction of the Temple, so he must have written before 70 AD. Acts 1:1-5 In Acts 1:3, .... (Jesus) gave many convincing proofs ... Why does Luke need proof. The whole thing is supposed to be about belief, and I suppose more strictly it is belief in the absence of proof or in the presence of contradictory probabilities. But here we are right at the get go, Jesus offers proof.
