Is writing objective history impossible? Many today believe so. To these folks everything is “text,” meaning something we can interpret however we please, the implication being facts must be interpreted, and since we’re the only interpreters “history” is nothing more than one person, or group’s tendentious interpretation of things. (You have your interpretation and I have mine, in other words, and who’s to say who is right?) This presupposes that facts don’t have an author. But if there is a creator, and if he makes his purposes known, then history truly is possible, and is worth the effort. Today we explore these ideas in relation to the Book of Acts (among other things). There we get a glimpse of the end of history and what it all is leading to.
