The Theology of the Gospel of Luke, Paperback

The Theology of the Gospel of Luke Paperback

Part of the New Testament Theology series



The Gospel of Luke, often mined for information about the life of Jesus, is also one of the earliest Christian examples of narrative theology.

Unlike some writers of New Testament books, Luke has engaged in the theological task by shaping a narrative representation of the coming and mission of Jesus.

In doing so, he goes to great lengths to ground the work of Jesus in the continuing story of God's redemptive plan, especially witnessed in the Scriptures, and he also emphasises the ongoing character of that story, with the result that Luke's audience is challenged to discern the purpose of God in order that they may embrace it and order their lives around it.

This exploration of the way in which Luke accomplishes his theological task in the first century is both informative and illuminating for contemporary readers seeking approaches to cultural criticism and constructive theology today.
