- Acts 4:29 Acts 4:31 Ephesians 6:19 Ephesians 6:20 ; Philippians 1:14 ; Colossians 4:3 Colossians 4:4 ; 2 Timothy 4:17 The Acts of the Apostles is a most valuable portion of Divinerevelation; and, independently of its universal reception in theChristian church, as an authentic and inspired production, itbears the most satisfactory internal evidence of itsauthenticity and truth
- St. Luke's long attendance upon St. Paul, and his having been an eyewitness of many of the factswhich he has recorded, independently of his Divine inspiration,render him a most suitable and credible historian; and hismedical knowledge, for he is allowed to have been a physician,enabled him both to form a proper judgment of the miraculouscures which were performed by St. Paul, and to give an authenticand circumstantial detail of them. The plainness and simplicityof the narrative are also strong circumstances in its favour.The history of the Acts is one of the most important parts ofthe Sacred History, for without it neither the Gospels norEpistles could have been so clearly understood; but by the aidof it the whole scheme of the Christian revelation is set beforeus in a clear and easy view.
