Luke Joins the Team
At Troas, Paul had a vision of a man in Macedonia pleading with him to come
over to Macedonia to help them. Luke has now joined the team at Troas. From henceforth he will include himself inconspicuously in the narrative. “Immediately we endeavored to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had call us to preach the gospel unto them.” The “we” and “us” portions of Acts include: 16:10-17; 20:5-15; 21:1-18; and 27:1–28:16. The Spirit had guided the apostles to Troas to find Luke. However, we must emphasize that they were guided there while they were moving without specific instructions. So far on this journey, Paul and Silas have picked up Timothy in Derbe, and Luke in Troas. Now these four will proceed together to Macedonia.
