G. Schille, Apostelgeschichte, ; R. .  So unterscheidet beispielsweise R. Pesch, Apostelgeschichte ,  –  zwischen Rahmen und Rede, die nur eingeschränkt zusammenpassen.  Vgl. J.

Die Apostelgeschichte im Kontext der antiken Literatur nicht gewährleistet, weshalb auszuschließen ist, dass er jenem Kreis aus zwölf Männern angehörte, die Lukas nach Ostern als Apostel benennt¹¹⁴. 1 Die variierende Nutzung des Apostelbegriffes im lukanischen Doppelwerk Diese enge Verwendungsweise des Substantives „ἀπόστολος“, die dem Verständnis nach der eines Amtes respektive Titels gleichkommt¹¹⁵, entspricht allerdings nicht dessen Nutzung im Evangelium.

Im Unterschied zu diesen inzwischen nur noch selten vertretenen Deutungsansätzen, orientiert sich die These einer epochengeschichtlichen Konzeption¹⁰³ nicht an vereinzelten narrativen Elementen oder Figuren, die zu fixieren wären, sondern an einem Thema, dem die entsprechenden Faktoren zur expliziten Ausformulierung dienen. Übertragen auf die konkreten Begriffe „Wort Gottes“, „Zeuge“ und „Apostel“, die nach wie vor eine entscheidende Rolle innerhalb der geschichtlichen wie theologischen Konstruktion des Lukas einnehmen, verändert sich deren Bedeutung dahingehend, dass sie nunmehr als Funktionsträger der Handlung respektive des Leitthemas zu verstehen sind¹⁰⁴.
