  1. The Joy of His Presen(ts)ce...part 2

    'Reflections of Fire

    Luke has opened his volume, as we saw, with a greeting to Theophilus, with both the opening greeting and reference referring back to the first part of his work, his Gospel about Jesus Christ. Going forward, Luke is now writing about the Acts of Jesus Christ.
