Should we ask of the people of Nazareth if there was not in this same time frame a young soon to be married woman claiming to be virgin standing pregnant with what her once reserved fiancee quickly accepted to be the miraculous conception of Israel's promised Messiah? Should we ask if the couple did not go at the census to the City of David Bethlehem and not return till after hiding out in Egypt years latter? Should we ask of the Shepherds there near Bethlehem? Shall we we ask the surrounding region of Bethlehem if their children two years and younger were not later targeted by King Herod and brutally murdered in an effort to cease this same young child? Had it not been so, Luke and the other gospel writers would have bitterly been contested on any of these many specific details. They for the most part were contested only as to what these factual things could have meant in the theological scheme of things as far as we can tell.

Does this not add to the certainty being declared? If you were this Theophilus, would not the angles of other's self defense to these allegations be just as concerning as the evidences presented? We of course in this age do not have access to all of these articles of reference and debate, but we do have the overwhelming evidence that these declarations caught on like wild fire; fires to which the authorities of that time unsuccessfully attempted to quench. How could these flames remain if there was not the perception (if not accumulating confirmation) of certainty?
