The Gospel of Luke : A Hypertextual Commentary, Hardback Book



This commentary demonstrates that the Gospel of Luke is a result of twofold, strictly sequential, hypertextual reworking of Paul's Letter to the Galatians.

The ideas of this letter were sequentially illustrated by Luke with the use of numerous literary motifs, taken from other Pauline and post-Pauline letters, the letters of James, Peter, and Jude, the Gospel of Mark, well-known classical Greek and Hellenistic works, the Septuagint, the Damascus Document, and the works of Flavius Josephus.

Consequently, the Lucan Jesus narratively embodies the features of God's Son who was revealed in the person, teaching, and course of life of Paul the Apostle.

The Gospel of Luke should therefore be regarded as a strictly theological-ethopoeic work, rather than a biographic one.
