Product Description

This new student textbook succinctly analyses key issues of Lukan studies today. The focus is primarily on Luke's Gospel, though sometimes the evidence of Acts is relevant too. Tuckett asks, What are Luke's own ideas and how have they influenced his narrative of the gospel events? Key topics are Luke's eschatology, his attitude to Jews, Gentiles and Judaism, Christology, and the question of poverty and possessions. In a final chapter Tuckett offers some hermeneutical reflections.

Publisher's Description

This book explores the phenomenon of shame in the Hebrew bible. It focuses particularly on the major prophets, because shame vocabulary is most prominent there. Shame has been widely discussed in the literature of psychology and anthropology; the book discusses the findings of both disciplines in some detail. It emphasises the social-anthropological honour/shame model, which a considerable number of biblical scholars since the early 1990s have embraced enthusiastically. The author highlights the shortcomings of this heuristic model and proposes a number of alternative critical approaches.
