Abstract

THE JESUS-PAUL PARALLELS AND THE PURPOSE OF LUKE-ACTS: H. H. EVANS RECONSIDERED BY A. J. MATTILL, JR. Findlay, Ohio The Jesus-Paul parallels in Luke-Acts have generally been overlooked, or treated only partially, or from the wrong perspec- tive. Recently the question has been raised as to whether these parallels are not too neat 1). A question of such fundamental importance to the understanding of Luke-Acts, Paul, and Jesus himself deserves a thorough answer. My own study of these paral- lels 1) was based largely upon RICHARD B. RACKHAM'S The Acts of the Apostles 2). Since then I have come upon a work which scholar- ship either never discovered or soon forgot-I have found no reference to it in the literature on the Jesus-Paul parallelism- namely, HOWARD HEBER EVANS, St. Paul the Author of the Acts of the Apostles and of the Third Gospel 3). Criticism today is in no mood to consider EVANS' claim that the Apostle Paul wrote Luke-Acts. Yet we must not allow EVANS' eccentricity in this respect to blind us to the permanent value of his study. After almost ninety years the time would seem to be ripe for a reconsideration of EVANS and this
