Intended for serious students of the New Testament, this text analyzes Stephen's sermon in Acts 7. It points out that the sermon contained the good news which the disciples were to proclaim, and that its literary structure is paralleled by the structures of both Luke and the Acts. The author argues that Israel's sacred history revealed the developmental stages of the Kingdom of God, which were completed with the event of Christ. He shows that, as Luke promised Theophilus (in Luke 1:1-4), the significance of the deeds and words of Jesus are to be discovered in the structure of what Luke had written.
