V 4 The chronicles of the Apostolic Age
The dominant master narrative of the Apostolic Age states the following: the Gallio episode in Acts 18:12ff fixes
the date for Paul’s visit to Corinth at 51/52 AD. Paul’s missionary journeys can be reconstructed on the basis of the information in the Acts of the Apostles and in Paul’s letters, and the date of the Apostolic Council set at 48/49 AD. The other events can also be dated from this basis.
These are my theses on this subject:
The Gallio episode in Acts 18:12ff is a literary construction by Luke; it is not based on any historical event and does not offer a reference point for the chronology of early Christianity.
The Apostolic Age begins with Jesus’ death in 36 AD: Ant. 18.4.1.
John the Baptist, the founder of the church of John (see below), died in 37 AD: Ant 18.5.2.
