200 CE), proclaims that it is the euangelion kata Loukan, the Gospel according to Luke. Marcionem 4.2.2), nor Clement of Alexandria (Paedagogus 2.1.15 and Stromata 5.12.82), who also ascribe the third Gospel to one called Luke.This attestation probably does not stem from reading Irenaeus (Adv. Indeed, considering that the immediate recipient of Luke is mentioned in the preface, and given that the author of the third Gospel is aware that many other accounts have been drawn up before him, it is entirely probable that the author had indicated his name on the autograph.

Notice also that the "we" narration drops off at Philippi and then picks up in the second passage with "We sailed from Philippi." This nonchalant and matter-of-fact dovetailing convinces me that the author of Acts was among those who were left behind at Philippi and joined up with Paul to sail from there later.The next higher critical question is, if Luke and Acts were written by the same person, who was that person?The oldest manuscript with the start of the gospel, Papyrus Bodmer XIV (ca.The first question that confronts one when examining Luke and Acts is whether they were written by the same person, as indicated in the prefaces.With the agreement of nearly all scholars, Udo Schnelle writes, "the extensive linguistic and theological agreements and cross-references between the Gospel of Luke and the Acts indicate that both works derive from the same author" (The History and Theology of the New Testament Writings, p. This implies the implausibility of the hypothesis of such as John Knox that Marcion knew only Luke, not Acts, and that Acts was an anti-Marcionite production of the mid second century.As he travelled throughout those regions, he provided many words of encouragement for them.
