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.
IKENGA: International Journal of African Studies, Vol. 11, Numbers 1&2 September, 2010
This article explored how the dynamics of the global political economy influences international games, such as, the FIFA World Cup. It further examined the extent of exaggeration of myths and benefits of the 2010 FIFA World Cup to South Africans, neighboring states, FIFA officials and the global community in the post game period. To effectively explain and understand the article, we adopted the Theory of Commercial Liberalism and argued that whenever nations compete for the hosting right for such tournament, they are mainly but not exclusively driven by the benefits that accrue. The relevance of this theory as forming the theoretical framework is based on the simple understanding that man´s fundamental reasoning is cooperation in order to prosper.
