Picture Luke at a table messy with handwritten memos, memorabilia, and photos. Luke is making a scrapbook for Theophilus. He’s got to be choosy or this book will be too big to carry! So he chooses this incident and that story. He recalls this moment, and borrows someone else’s notes for one he missed. Luke wants to convey, not just a random assortment of occasions, but a message about how the Gospel of Jesus Christ went from Jerusalem to Rome after Jesus himself left the planet. Turn the pages carefully. Study each moment intently. There’s lots to learn from The Great Gospel Roadtrip found in the book of Acts.
