This paper examines the depiction of the Romans in Luke-Acts with a view to the discussion concerning whether this narrative is anti-imperial. The narrative is not clearly pro-Roman, but then again, it is not clearly anti-Roman either. The same needs to be said of the narrative’s depictions of Judaism, and the early Christians – they too are variegated.
