The Book of Acts in Its Palestinian Setting is devoted to a series of studies of those parts of the narrative of Acts that are specifically set in Palestine. The geographical, political, cultural, social, and religious aspects of first-century Jewish Palestine are all explored in order to throw light on Luke’s account of the Palestinian origins of early Christianity . There are fresh assessments of the historical significance of key features, persons, and events in Luke’s narrative.
