Thematic Analysis꞉ Acts 13꞉1–28꞉31 Assignment Instructions
In this third and final movement of the book of Acts, found in Acts 13:1-28:31, you will discover the progression of the reach of the gospel. As the gospel has now spread from Jerusalem to a much wider audience, you will discover an evolution of the Jewish response to Paul and his presentation of the gospel. As you examine the final chapter, you will also see how the themes that you have traced throughout the book of Acts converge.
While the following is not an exhaustive list, you should be sure to address these elements in your essay:
How does this segment develop the theme of the geographical/ethnic advance of the proclamation of the gospel presented in the key verse of the book, Acts 1:8? What is the “geographic target”? Trace the development of this theme through this section of Acts.
Identify what you believe to be the most important themes developed by Luke in this movement of the book (of Dr. Fowler’s nine themes) and trace those themes through this segment of the book. Fowler states that all of the key themes converge in the final chapter of the book. Describe this convergence.
Luke presents three evangelistic messages by Paul in this movement of the book: his sermon in the synagogue of Pisidian Antioch in chapter 13, his plea to the people of Lystra in chapter 14, and his address to the philosophers of Athens in chapter 17. He also narrates Paul’s defense appearances before Governor Felix, Governor Festus, and King Agrippa 2. The last of these includes a gospel presentation. Read the three evangelistic messages and the defense before Agrippa again. Compare/contrast Paul’s preaching to the Jews with his preaching to pagans.
What pattern/progression do you see in the Jewish response to the witness of Paul in these chapters? (Give attention in your thinking to Paul’s words in 13:46–47, 18:6, and 28:25–28.)
The essay should be 1,000-1,500 words, not including the title page and bibliography.

Ger, Scripture, and at least one additional scholarly resource must be used.
