Product Description

The Gospel of John is usually singled out as the chief culprit of the antisemitism which undoubtedly exists in the New Testament. In The Jews in Luke-Acts professor Jack Sanders argues that Luke is just as much to blame. Sanders provides a historical study that purposes to make as clear as possible how the author of Luke-Acts portrays the Jews, both in full and in part, and to try to explain why he portrays them as he does.

The bulk of the historical study Sanders provides in The Jews in Luke-Acts is divided into two parts—a thematic investigation and a systematic analysis. The third and final section offers a review of several theories regarding Luke's possible motives for portraying the Jews as he does, as well as a conclusion that it must be Luke, not speculation about what was going on in his time and place between church and synagogue, who provides the answer.

Author Bio

Dr. Jack T. Sanders (1935-2016) was a Professor of Religious Studies and former head of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Oregon. He earned his B.A. degree from Texas Wesleyan College, a master’s degree from Emory University, and his Ph.D. degree from the Claremont Graduate University in Southern California. Sanders was the author of numerous scholarly articles and books, most of which deals with one of two subjects: the way in which religious ideas flowed from one culture to another and were adapted into new contexts (New Testament Christological Hymns; Ethics in the New Testament; Ben Sira and Demotic Wisdom; and Charisma, Converts, Competitors); and the origins of Jewish-Christian conflict (Jews in Luke-Acts and Schismatics, Sectarians, Dissidents, Deviants).
