CREAMER, Jennifer M; SPENCER, Aida B  y  VIJOEN, Francois P. Who is Theophilus? Discovering the original reader of Luke-Acts. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.48, n.1, pp.1-07. ISSN 2305-0853.

The aim of this article is to investigate the nature of Theophilus as the original reader of Luke-Acts. A lexical and grammatical analysis of Luke 1:1-4 and of the broader literary context of the Luke-Acts narrative provided the basis for discovering the identity of Theophilus. This article proposes that Theophilus was a man of prominent position: a Gentile who had received some introductory teachings about Christ and who needed factual verification of the events surrounding the emergence of Christianity.
