Willy Wiedmann described the Acts of the Apostles as a “chronic continuo” in which the authors attempted to testify to and protect a historical record of the early church. Of course, Luke was relying on various sources, and rewrote them to suit his purposes. In Wiedmann’s opinion, the Acts of the Apostles break off too abruptly following the various stations to Rome, as if a section had been lost. Therefore, he felt, a true conclusion seemed to be lacking.
