Meet Theophilus. He's the fellow Luke dedicated his 2-volume work to (think Luke - Acts). Much of what had happened since Jesus came must've seemed odd - a royal birth with little fanfare, a Jewish messiah that hardly anyone in the know recognized, an unexpected resurrection and hasty return to heaven, and a promised kingdom that failed to appear. Hmmm. Luke writes to show his friend that what's happened is actually a precise fulfillment of God's wise Plan. He could bank on it! What is ti about the coming and life of Jesus that seems quirky to you?
