Next he examines the Lukan writings (Luke-Acts) to see how Luke talks about the encounters of Paul and other gospel preachers with Roman imperialism. Kim explores why it is that Luke makes no effort to present Christs redemption as materialized in terms of political liberation. Finally, Kim compares the exaltation Christologies of Luke, Revelation, Paul, and Hebrews and inquires about the hermeneutical possibility of developing a political Christology in our present-day context.
"Seyoon Kim provides us with a thoughtful and well-informed examination of Paul's and Luke's attitudes toward Roman rule, touching on a number of issues not previously so well or fully discussed. At the same time, Kim provides a useful corrective to the latest fad in New Testament criticism, namely, the hypothesis of 'Jesus the freedom fighter,' showing it to be generally based upon faulty use of the data."
"A steady stream of publications over recent years has argued that NT texts contain anti-imperial agendas. Seyoon Kim's new volume dares to swim against the popular current. He argues that Paul's letters, the Gospel of Luke, and the Acts of the Apostles do not, in fact, attempt to subvert the Roman imperial order. . . This book is highly recommended for all scholars and pastors with special interest in the NT's relationship to the Roman Empire. It is concise and clear, making it accessible to a wide readership."
