The narratological analysis of the Bible has now become established within the international discussion of exegesis. However, the difficulty of producing compatibility and transparency of the concepts and terms of narratological theory still exists. This is the point of departure for this book, which in the first section systemizes the multiple concepts within narratological theory and explains the terms. Narratological theory is made understandable and plausible for those new to the field. The book thus is an introduction to narratology and, with the included index, also can be used as a reference book.The second section applies the narratological analytical concepts to selected texts from the beginning, middle and end of Acts. Especially one result is important in this context: The narrator explains the new, Christ-oriented understanding of faith using manifold ties to the Jewish Holy Scriptures and often from the perspective of Judaism. In this way he tries to overcome the Jewish scriptures and often from the perspective of Judaism. In this way he tries to overcome the Jewish scruples and hindrances presented by the Torah concerning a mission to the pagans. In the famous conclusion of Acts, the Isaiahan motif of hardened hearts makes plausible the fact that the people of Israel repeatedly do not accept Christ and therefore legitimizes the mission to the pagans. There is no indication of Christianity replacing Judaism in salvation history.
