This study first examines how Luke adapted the miracles from the Gospel of Mark and identifies consistent patterns in the way he used his source materials; it then applies these criteria to the stories and summaries in Acts, and uncovers the basic outlines of 11 pre-Lukan miracle traditions and a few legend fragments. It examines how the author of Luke-Acts used these stories, how they fit in the literary design of Acts, and what the relationship is of miracle to faith and conversion. The miracles stories throw into sharp relief Luke's own understanding of Christ, the human condition and the sovereignty of God.
