Capital punishment is one of the basic issues in applied ethics. As a concept which bothers much on justice, it is also a critical issue in legal philosophy wherein it is examined under the umbrella of ‘corrective justice’. Although virtually every known human society has practised it at one time or the other in the course of its existence, its usefulness and effectiveness as an instrument for corrective justice is increasingly coming under serious attacks in this modern time. Capital punishment has generated debates which have raged on for over four hundred years. That capital punishment has been abolished in most of the industrialized countries of the world is a development that calls for sober reflection. The purpose of this work, therefore, is to examine some ethical issues involved in capital punishment, with a view to determining whether its continued practice can ever be justified in this modern time and, if so, under what circumstances. It also examines critically, the various points and arguments adduced by the existing schools of thought in defence of their respective positions.

The origins of revenge tragedy date back to Roman philosopher Seneca (4 BC – AD 65) who wrote a small number of closet dramas (plays intended to be read, not performed). Senecan tragedy typically involved elements of revenge via the supernatural, which later appealed to the tastes of Elizabethan playwrights and audiences. In the 1st century AD there were strict guidelines set in place to ensure the bloodshed in the plot of a revenge tragedy was communicated to characters on stage via a messenger. Influenced by the Senecan tragedies of Roman times, revenge tragedies became very popular in the Elizabethan (1558-1603) and Jacobean (1603-1625) periods in England. As the title suggests, these dramas involved one or more characters seeking revenge upon another. Most importantly, bloodshed and murder were integral to the form and unlike the Senecan tragedies, Elizabethan audiences demanded the violent display of murder and revenge occur before their eyes on stage.
The early Christian sermons that Luke summarized and recorded form to a very great extent the basis for a reconstruction of the kerygma, and from this point of view, the gospel records were made. Luke's account of how Christianity made its way among Gentiles without discarding the more vital points of Judaism did much toward establishing unity. The account of Paul's arrest in the city of Jerusalem and the trials that followed clearly vindicate Paul in the eyes of any impartial reader. The end of the book is somewhat disappointing because one would expect to read about Paul's trial in Caesar's court, but the account ends rather abruptly. Some people think that Luke intended to write a third volume of his history but was unable to do so. Of this we cannot be certain. However, we are indebted to Luke in no small measure for the two accounts of Christianity that he did write.
