Between the Evangelists and the Apologists

Dating Acts by Richard I. Pervo
Book DescriptionIn Dating Acts, Richard Pervo subjects the scholarly consensus that Acts was written about 80-85 C.E. to a rigorous scholarly examination. Analyzing the author's sources, methods, theology, familiarity with ecclesiastical developments and vocabulary, Pervo discovers that the author of Acts is familiar with the later writings of Josephus (c. 100 C.E.) and that the theological perspectives of Acts have much in common with elements found in the Pastoral Epistles and Polycarp (c. 125-130). He also situates the book of Acts in terms of its place in the development of early Christianity and its social and ideological context, and shows how a second-century date helps to interpret it.

Pastorals and Polycarp, Paperback (September 2016)
The Pastoral Epistles (Titus, 1-2 Timothy) and Polycarp to the Philippians are uniquely similar among early second-century Christian texts. This dynamic rather than literal translation by Pervo of this collection remains true to the everyday Greek original, and includes the Greek text, notes, and an introduction.
Gospel of Luke, Paperback (February 2014)
What prompted the anonymous author of Luke to edit his sources--Mark and Q--and retell the story of Jesus? Using the Scholars Version translation that is true to the everyday Greek of the gospel writers, Pervo explores the who, when, where, why, and how of the Gospel of Luke. Includes the Greek text, introduction, notes, and cross-references.
