One + One = No One

As you know Luke wrote both the Gospel of Luke (the story of Jesus) and Acts (the story of the early church). In the Book of Acts, Luke has a habit of giving us vignettes, short accounts, of what life was like in the early church, which to be honest, can be “discouraging,” writes Tom Long, “not because they are gloomy, dark words but on the contrary because they are so perfect, so idyllic so dreamlike that it is impossible not to compare to the church we actually know and live in.” (Source, Tom Long, “Learning to Squint”)
