HEBREW AND TALMUDICAL

by John Lightfoot
HEBREW AND TALMUDICAL Ε Χ Ε R C I T A T I Ο Ν Sa UPON THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES. CHAP. I. R. I : Τον μϊν πρώτον λόγον ζποιησάμην, & C. The former treatise have I made, § c.] We may reduce to this place ( for even thus far it may be extended) what our historian had said in the very entrance of his Gospel, löofe καμοΧ καθςζής σοϊ γράψαι, it seemed good to me also to write unto thee in order: where καθζξψ, in order, seems to promise, not only an orderly series of the history of the actions of our Saviour, but succes-sively, even of the apostles too. For what passages we have related to us in this book may very well be reckoned amongst the πράγματα πςπληροφορημένα, those things which are most surely believed among us. Indeed, by the very style in this place he shews that he had a design of writing these stories jointly; that is to say, first to give us a narration of the actions and doctrine of Christ, and then, in their due place and order, to commit to writing the acts and sayings of the apostles. As to most of the things contained in this book, St. Luke was both αντόπτψ, an eyewitness, yea, and a part also : but how far he was spectator of those acts of our Saviour which he relates in his other book, none can say. What he speaks in the preface of that work is ambiguous, Ιδο£ 6 κάμοί πασιν aim- θ* ν παρηκοΚονθηκόη, and leaves the reader to inquire whether he means, he had a perfect understanding of all things from the very first, by the same only way which those had that undertook to compile the evangelical histories from the mouth αυτόπτων a English folio edit., vol. ii. p. 633.
