Compare how the Apostles are characterized in Acts and how Jesus
is depicted in Luke, in five different ways:
a) what the author of Acts directly says about the Apostles;
and what the author of Luke directly claims about Jesus.
b) what the Apostles are quoted as saying in Acts; and what
Jesus is quoted as saying in Luke.
c) what the Apostles are depicted as doing in Acts; and what
Jesus is depicted as doing in Luke.
d) what other characters in Acts say in reaction to the words
and deeds of the Apostles; and what other characters in Luke say in
reaction to the words and deeds of Jesus.
e) what other characters in Acts do in reaction to the words
and deeds of the Apostles; and what other characters in Luke do in reaction
to the words and deeds of Jesus.Writing Assignment:
Write 1½ to 2 pages comparing the depiction of the Apostles in Acts
with the portrayal of Jesus in Luke; give one or more specific examples
for each of the five categories listed above. For clarity, discuss
these in five separate brief paragraphs.
Always cite chapter & verse numbers, not only when you quote
text, but even when you merely refer to passages!
Please also pay careful attention to the quality of your writing,
even in such a short paper:
Write in standard essay format (very brief introduction,
structured 5-part main body, very brief conclusion).
Please proof-read your paper carefully before you print it out and
turn it in; bad grammar will affect your grade!
Use a computer spell-checker, but do not rely on it alone, since
it cannot catch all typographical errors!
