Luke = Oliver Stone

I wonder if using Oliver Stone and his many biopic movies is a good way to discuss Luke’s historic narrative of the early church. Like Luke, Stone does his homework—whether we agree with his interpretation of history is another question. Like Luke, he has to be selective with the scenes he retells—and, with the ones he does retell, some get more attention than others. Like Luke, he has a purpose other than reporting history.
