Product Description

The Gospel of Luke [NICNT] presents a comprehensive presentation of the third gospel that eloquently balances exegetical, social-scientific, and theological matters. Green is especially adept at unpacking Luke's overall message against its historical background, while also understanding Luke within its broader context of Acts. As such, Green spends much time analyzing the literary and narrative structure of Luke. This award-winning commentary has served the church well in its first decade and promises to do so for many years to come.

Endorsements

Biblica
This is a refreshing attempt to produce a new type of commentary, one that is synchronic rather than diachronic. It is well researched, carefully crafted, and eminently readable. It would function as a complement, a sometimes a corrective, to the traditional redaction critical commentary.

Church Times (U.K.)
This is a commentary that maintains a constant freshness and sense of direction as issue succeeds to issue. It is one to use and to read, especially if you are interested to see how the Gospel of Luke fares in the light of the two fruitful questions: How does the narrative go? And how does it go as a Jewish-influenced Christian work of late first-century Graeco-Roman society, with its own ways of looking at the world, many of them fascinatingly different from our own, though intelligible, not least if we attend to books like this.

Expository Times
This is among the best volumes in an impressive conservative commentary series on the Greek text and RSV translation…. The author constantly throws new light on the text by being unusually sensitive to Old Testament echoes and to the evangelist's narrative strategies.

Internationale Zeitschriftenschau fur Bibelwissenschaft und Grenzgebiete (IZBG)
Green has given a great gift to NT scholarship. His book is a full-scale critical commentary characterized by substantial interaction with international scholarship…. Green has written the state-of-the-art book on the Third Gospel.

Journal of Theological Studies
This is a significant contribution to the study of Luke. The general concentration in more recent years on the theological message of Luke and the coherence of his two-volume work is to be welcomed, and it is important that full account should be taken of social attitudes and relationships in the ancient world in trying to assess the impact Luke intended the gospel to have. This commentary contains a wealth of material which subsequent students of the gospel will have to address and insights at many points for which they will be grateful.

Reviews in Religion & Theology (U.K.)
This is an approach for which the Lukan scholar ought to be truly grateful, a timely contribution to studies of Luke-Acts that expounds the text in detail for what it claims to be, a narrative, and not an archeological tel.

Stone-Campbell Journal
An outstanding contribution to Lukan scholarship. The methodology is a refreshing alternative to several more familiar approaches…. This book will be warmly received by scholars...This is a fine reference tool that will well serve the preacher or teacher in the pursuit of literary connections and theological meaning.

The Bible Today
This major new commentary on the Gospel of Luke is exceptionally fine…. A thorough and finely balanced study of the context and message of Luke's Gospel.
