Abstract

This chapter discusses some of the key areas of connection between Paul and Luke. It begins with a short introduction to the references to Luke in the Pauline corpus. The chapter evaluates briefly the theory that Luke was Paul’s amanuensis. It focuses on Paul in Acts and associated issues. The body of the chapter will interact with the major theories regarding the “we” passages of Acts. The chapter highlights the need for scholars to nuance their discussions and to recognise explicitly the inherent limitations of the evidence. In studies of authorship, amanuensis, and literary relationship, scholars talk about Luke’s relationship with Paul; however, they rarely (if ever) define who exactly they are talking about.
