comment What are the evidences that Luke is written after/before the fall of Jerusalem?
You are considerably more definite about the date of Mark's Gospel than others, and I think this is perhaps because you aren't allowing for the apocalyptic genre of Mark 13 and the double prophecy it intertwines. This is a prophetic idiom continued from the Hebrew Bible.

The internal attribution of Luke/Acts is not completely absent: The "we" passages in Acts, where the first person plural is used, point to the author being a companion of Paul

Can you add support for the claim that there were eight righteous people in the time of Noach? I understood there was only one…

Hi Matthew, I guess you are busy at the moment, but I don't want you to come back and find the site philosophy has changed completely without you having a chance to have your say. If you have a moment please take a look at this meta post and consider voting :)

@H3br3wHamm3r81 apparently in general Greek it was used in the sense of to serve, minister to, either gods or men, and used alike of slaves and of freemen. If I'm understanding correctly it only occurs about 20 times in the NT so it may just be coincidence that it is not used in the other sense?

Do you see it that way in Acts 7:42?
