This falsification of the Bible was based on the mistranslation of one word: 'Theophilus.' Presumably both the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts were written to this 'Theophilus.' Since both Books begin with the same address -- according to all the translations of the New Testament -- it is assumed that Luke wrote both of them. I made this commentary to explain how the error was introduced.
Luke and Acts were not written by the same scribe. from Vic Alexander on Vimeo.
The word is 'theo-peela' from the Ancient Aramaic and not 'Theophilus' from the Koine Greek. 'Theo' means 'About the Creator' and 'peela' means 'pupil' or 'student,' so it is 'theologian.' The two Books were written for theologians (or leaders of the Churches), and both of the Books -- the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts -- were written under the supervision of the Apostle Paul. Paul trained Luke as a scribe. He refers to Luke as 'our dear physician.' Luke was also a physician by profession.
