The historical reliability of the Acts of the Apostles , the principal historical source for the Apostolic Age , is of interest for biblical scholars and historians of Early Christianity as part of the debate over the historicity of the Bible. Archaeological inscriptions and other independent sources show that Acts contains some accurate details of 1st century society with regard to the titles of officials, administrative divisions, town assemblies, and rules of the Second Temple in Jerusalem. However, the historicity of the depiction of Paul the Apostle in Acts is contested. Acts describes Paul differently from how Paul describes himself, both factually and theologically. Luke—Acts is a two-part historical account traditionally ascribed to Luke , who was believed to be a follower of Paul. The author of Luke—Acts noted that there were many accounts in circulation at the time of his writing, saying that these were eye-witness testimonies.
