The aim of this thesis is to examine the Old Testament and rabbinic literature to see what role, if any, they played in the formation of the ’σδσ’ς concept of Acts. The Septuagint in particular deserves attention since it held such an important position in the Apostolic Church and so largely affected the writers of the New Testament. As H. B. Swete remarks, the New Testament writers not only were familiar with the Septuagint; but were saturated with its thought and vocabulary.
