This article gives close attention to the technique of Luke in his composition of Acts 17:16-34. This reveals the ways in which the Areopoagus narrative is not aimed at a Gentile audience but rather engages multiple implied readers or audiences. The way Paul is portrayed and the responses of the Athenians to his message are suggestive of how Luke answers for his readers the question, "What hath Athens to do with Jerusalem?"
