The Gradual Disclosure of Paul’s Violence Against Christians in the Acts of the Apostles as an Apology for the Standing of the Lukan Paul
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Theology, Department of Theology, Old and New Testament Exegesis.

Abstract [en]

Luke reveals Paul’s violence against the Jesus movement not in the first depiction of Paul’s persecution (Acts 8:3; 9:1–2) but rather much later in the narrative (22:4; 26:9–11). Luke’s making the fullest disclosure of Paul’s persecutions toward the end of Acts is consistent with an apologetic agenda of attempting to minimize the negative implications of Paul’s persecutory past for subsequent reception(s) of the Pauline legacy.
