Luke's perspective on government and Christianity

Why do you think Luke was so interested in detailing the relationship between Christianity and the government (the Sanhedrin, the Philippians and Thessalonian magistrates; the governors Sergius Paulus, Gallio, Felix and Festus; and King Agrippa)?

I think that Luke's underlying motivation may have been to show that all the world is subject to God's will.  In each and every instance, involving all of the above named officials, what happened is what God wanted to happen to further the spreading of the Gospel where and when He wanted.  In every instance involving these government officials, what we see is God's provision at work to make happen what He said would happen.
