Hidden from my eyes

Someone emailed me [Monday 2-5-07] to repeat a comment made to him to tell me:

“The term ‘excellent’ is also used in the Bible in reference to Felix and Festus, who were Roman governors (Acts 23:26- 26:25) but notice in Acts 1:3 Luke is no longer addressing Theophilus as ‘most excellent’ but as ‘O Theophilus’-- which indicates that Theophilus probably was no longer in office by the time that Luke was writing, or had completed writing Acts- so who knows for sure-- but the Theophilus proposal article is interesting to say the least.”
