Internal Evidence The internal evidence may be briefly summarized as follows: • The author of Acts was a companion of Saint Paul, namely, Saint Luke; and • the author of Acts was the author of the Gospel.
SAINT LUKE'S ACCURACY Very few writers have ever had their accuracy put to such a severe test as St. Luke, on account of the wide field covered by his writings, and the consequent liability (humanly speaking) of making mistakes; and on account of the fierce attacks to which he has been subjected.
It was the fashion, during the nineteenth century, with German rationalists and their imitators, to ridicule the "blunders" of Luke, but that is all being rapidly changed by the recent progress of archæological research.

It goes without saying, I think, that Apollonius would never have wanted to return to a country inhabited by people who had tried to humiliate and kill him, so his refusal to Vespasian is completely understandable.
