The reception of Paul in the first century has been discussed many times. Daniel Marguerat defended the position of three different receptions: a documentary, a biography and a doktoralen. Marguerat advocates that the value of this phenomenon is recognized reception, especially the figure of Paul in Acts. They should not be systematically compare with the writings of the Apostle, although this is the result of an interpretation of Luke. The essays examine the literary and theological structure of Acts, where the focus is on the character of Paul, his relationship to the Torah, the Socratic model, of character representation of Luke, the resurrection as the central theme of the book of Acts, the importance of meals. They also treat themes of Pauline theology: Paul as a mystic, justification by faith, the imitation of Paul as the father and mother of the church, and the veil of women in Corinth.
