Following a discussion of methodology, historical background, and critical scholarship, this study provides a comprehensive examination of the dreams and visions in Luke-Acts, with special attention given to those that feature significant interpretation by characters in the story (e.g., Zechariah and Mary [Luke 1-2], Sauls/Pauls conversion [Acts 9, 22, and 26], the Cornelius-Peter episode [Acts 10:1-11:18], and Pauls dream at Troas [Acts 16:9-10]). Lukan dreams and visions certainly portray Gods active involvement in the early church. The present study argues that the human side of these visionary encounters is equally important. Just as Lukan dreams and visions depict Gods active involvement in the events of human history, they also depict Gods people attempting to perceive Gods will through these visionary encounters.
