Story in a nutshell : a girl versus a priest and the matter of proper listening
Story distilled : the first eight of twelve preparatory poems
Story distilled and elaborated : the last four poems
A motif of darkness and disruption
"Peace to this house" and "things that make for peace"
"What must I do to inherit eternal life?"
What to pray for, and how
Neither signs nor status : hear the word, do it
Look inside yourself, and do the word
Relinquish possessions - and/or the spirit of possessing
Relinquish privilege : use it for God's purposes
Relinquish family and religion

Jesus strives against Israel's old-guard leadership
You must strive : Jesus challenges followers
Luke's gospel in early Acts : the hinge-points
Peter : three speeches to fellow-Israelites
Three model speeches : Stephen, and the twelve (two)
Peter : three speeches about non-Jews joining faithful Israel
Paul in acts : his two framing speeches to Israel
The gospel according to Paul : back-to-back speeches
Paul : three defense speeches before Israel and Gentiles
Paul : three repentance accounts
Conclusion : "believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved" : the whole story in one scene
