Example text

Mohr [Paul Siebeck], 1999), 50. 67 See Gaventa (“Toward a Theology of Acts,” 150–157) and Stenschke (Portrait, 51– 52). 20 introduction Paul’s dream-vision at Troas (Acts 16:6–10) is one of the most perplexing visionary encounters in Luke’s narrative, and requires special attention. In this passage, the narrator describes a peculiar dream-vision in which no divine agent is mentioned. Instead, Paul and his companions are left to interpret Paul’s dream, drawing a theological conclusion. Their conclusion that they had been called to proclaim the gospel in Macedonia—a conclusion accepted by most commentators—is particularly interesting when read in the larger context of Acts 13–17.

The shepherds respond to their vision of angels in this way (Luke 2:8–20), as does Philip (Acts 8:26–40). More important are the implications of these dream-visions for the understanding of Lukan theology. Although it has long been noted that Luke’s dream-visions reveal an interest in depicting God’s active involvement in the events of human history, the present study suggests that it is equally important to notice the role of human interpretation in these encounters. Just as Luke’s dream-visions depict God as an active participant in human affairs, they also depict God’s people attempting to perceive God’s will through these same visionary encounters.
