Abstract

Some scholars conclude that in the account of Pentecost in Acts 2 the author makes parallels to the event of the giving of the law at Sinai. Previously these parallels have primarily been argued through secondary texts. This thesis is interested in engaging with the primary text, the Old and New Testament, in order to prove Luke himself would not make Pentecost/Sinai parallels. The goal is to identify a Lukan pattern of parallel within his wider work through which the suggested Pentecost/Sinai parallels can be assessed. The author of Luke-Acts uses an identifiable pattern when paralleling Old Testament narrative, and such a patterns not yet been used for the debate surrounding the relation between Pentecost and Sinai. Our examination will consist of four case studies in Luke-Acts in which the author parallels Old Testament narrative. A pattern from these case studies will then be used to draw conclusions concerning the Pentecost and Sinai debate.
