Whereas Matthew locates Jesus’ gradual rejection by Israel near the middle of the story (Matthew 11–12), Luke delays this until the very end of Jesus’ life, when he encounters the Temple authorities in Jerusalem (Luke 19:47); and it is only in the second volume, which we know as Acts, after the proclamation of Jesus’ resurrection, that Israel in general rejects him. Throughout Luke and the early chapters of Acts, Jesus and his followers remain steadfastly committed to the laws of Moses, and they get along fairly well with Pharisees and common people (see Luke 7:36, 11:37, 13:31, 14:1, 17:20–21, 19:39; Acts 5:33–42).
