Product Description

Luke Timothy Johnson in The Gospel of Luke has penned amasterful literary commentary on the thrid Gospel. Interpreted as the first volume of the two-part writing known by scholars as Luke-Acts, the literary unity of the two biblical books is assumed throughout, with the entire composition taken as a apologetic history which seeks to demonstrate how the good news that began with Jesus both fulfilled the promises of God made to the Jewish people and found a legitimate place among the Gentiles.

While paying close attention to Luke's overall narrative, this commentary demonstartes the way in which the prtrayal of Jesus, his followers, his opponents, and his teachings fit within Luke's broader literary and religosu purposes.

This comentary will provide an excellant resource for studying Luke's gopsel, and for further study in Acts. Acceessible to all readers, it nevertheless does not shy away from tackling tough questions while neve failing to explain clearly the major issues at hand.Luke Timothy Johnson is without question one of the finest NT scholars in the world. His works combine a strong strong command of theology, history, and the biblical text with a uncommon and penetrating spiritual sensitivity.
