The Gospel of Luke, often mined for information about the life of Jesus, is also one of the earliest Christian examples of narrative theology. Luke goes to great lengths to ground the work of Jesus in the continuing story of God's redemptive plan, and his emphasis on the ongoing character of that story challenges his audience to discern the purpose of God and order their lives around it. This exploration of the way in which he accomplishes his theological task in the first century is both informative and illuminating for contemporary readers.

Apostasy and Perseverance in the Theology of Luke

The starting point of our investigation, like much recent writing on Luke, was Hans Conzelmann's study, Die Mitte der Zeit. Despite the many evident merits of this book, it fails to offer a convincing exegetical foundation for the author's conception of a Satan-free Age of Jesus, bordered on the one end by the devil's completion of every peirasmoz (Lk 4,13) and on the other by the reappearance odf Satan and peirasmoz at the start of Jesus' passion (Lk 22,3). Upon further reflection it occurred to us that Conzelmann's conception was based on an unwarranted presupposition, i.e. that Luke understood peirasmoz in the same fashion as the epistolary literature of the New Testament. Only in terms of this latter understanding of the word could Conzelmann speak of a Satan free Age of Jesus or maintain that peirasmoz is the characteristic of the Age of the Church. Our study of the Lucan usage of peirasmoz revealed on he contrary that the word is not a part of Luke's own theological vocabulary and that in those places where he has taken it over from his sources he understands it in a sense quite different from the one it has in the New Testament epistles.

A Theology of Luke and Acts

God’s Promised Program, Realized for All Nations

Author: Darrell L. Bock

Page: 496

View: 9903

This groundbreaking work by Darrell Bock thoroughly explores the theology of Luke’s gospel and the book of Acts. In his writing, Luke records the story of God working through Jesus to usher in a new era of promise and Spirit-enablement so that the people of God can be God’s people even in the midst of a hostile world. It is a message the church still needs today. Bock both covers major Lukan themes and sets forth the distinctive contribution of Luke-Acts to the New Testament and the canon of Scripture, providing readers with an in-depth and holistic grasp of Lukan theology in the larger context of the Bible. I. Howard Marshall: “A remarkable achievement that should become the first port of call for students in this central area of New Testament Theology.” Craig S. Keener: “Bock’s excellent exploration of Luke’s theological approach and themes meets an important need in Lukan theology.”

The product of a number of years of reflection on the Gospel of Mark, this book explains in a clear and understandable way the contribution that the evangelist has made to the theology of the developing Jesus tradition. Joining forces with those who see Mark as a theologian of some considerable creativity, Dr. Telford emphasizes the importance of context (the historical and the contemporary) and method (the historical-critical approach with insights drawn from the newer literary approaches) for the proper understanding of Mark.

The Theology of the Acts of the Apostles

Who are the people of God? Luke's purposes in Acts are to identify the Church, to establish the legitimacy of its gospel and to demonstrate that God was an active force in history. He shows that the communities of Jewish and Gentile Christians are the true heirs of God's promises to Israel. This is a theological interpretation of the history of the Church within history: Luke is an artist, a narrator rather than a systematic theologian, but he writes about the roles of God, Christ and the Holy Spirit and of the Church.

Biblical Theology of the Old and New Testaments

Theological Reflection on the Christian Bible

This monumental work is the first comprehensive biblical theology to appear in many years and is the culmination of Brevard Child's lifelong commitment to constructing a biblical theology that surmounts objections to the discipline raised over the past generation. Childs rejects any approaches that overstress either the continuity or discontinuity between the Old and New Testaments. He refuses to follow the common pattern in Christian thought of identifying biblical theology with the New Testament's interest in the Old. Rather, Childs maps out an approach that reflects on the whole Christian Bible with its two very different voices, each of which retains continuing integrity and is heard on its own terms.

Generations of students have known G.B. Caird as a penetrating and lucid guide to the many questions and problems posed by modern biblical study. His brillant commentaries on St Luke, the Book of Revelation, and St Paul's Prison Epistles, as well as his other studies on theology and the Bible, have won for him a place among the twentieth century's foremost biblical scholars. This new and masterly presentation of New Testament theology, completed and edited since the author's death by Professor L.D. Hurst, takes the unique step of setting up an imaginary debate amongst the various authors of the New Testament themselves. As central concepts (predestination, sin, atonement, the church, sacrament, ethics, eschatology, and christology) are `discussed' between such figures as Luke, Paul, John, and the author of Hebrews, the work moves to its climax with a presentation of the theology of Jesus himself. The result provides a particularly fresh and illuminating picture of the ideas at the heart of Christianity, deserving a place on the shelf of every serious pastor, theologian, and student of the Bible.

Through Many Tribulations

The Theology of Persecution in Luke-Acts

Author: Scott Cunningham

Publisher: A&C Black

ISBN: 9781850756613

Category: Religion

View: 4443

This book, the first comprehensive study of persecution in Luke-Acts from a literary and theological perspective, argues that the author uses the theme of persecution in pursuit of his theological agenda. It brings to the surface six theological functions of the persecution theme, which has an important paraenetic and especially apologetic role for Luke's persecuted community. The persecution Luke's readers suffer is evidence that they are legitimate recipients of God's salvific blessings.

Christ and the New Creation

A Canonical Approach to the Theology of the New Testament

In Christ and the New Creation, Matthew Emerson takes a fresh approach to understanding New Testament theology by using a canonical methodology. Although typically confined to Old Testament theology, Emerson sees fruitfulness in applying this method to New Testament theology as well. Instead of a thematic or book-by-book analysis, Emerson attempts to trace the primary theological message of the New Testament through paying attention to its narrative and canonical shape. He concludes that the order of the books of the New Testament emphasize the story of Christ's inauguration, commissioning, and consummation of the new creation.
