Although a date in the 80s is popular and possible, it is not the most likely . 29 Reasons for this date include the following: (1) the picture in Acts that Rome, knowing little about the movement, is still deciding where Christianity fits; (2) failure to note the death of either James (AD 62) or Paul (ca . , Acts 6 – 7 [the Stephen account], 21 – 23 [Paul’s arrest in Jerusalem]); and (4) the amount of uncertainty expressed about internal Gentile-Jewish relations, especially table fellowship, which fits a setting that parallels the Pauline letters that deal with similar tensions (Romans, Galatians, 1 Corinthians 8 – 10, Ephesians) .
