{Who it was that was responsible for the additional information concerning

the apostolic age or where it came from is entirely unknown. According to F.

G. Kenyon, "What one would like to suppose (but for which there is no exter-

nal evidence), is that one of St. Paul's companions transcribed Luke's book

[Acts] (perhaps after the author's death), and inserted details of which he

had personal knowledge, & made other alterations in accordance with his own

taste in a matter on which he was entitled to regard himself as having auth-
