Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Formatted Contents Note: Introduction and history of research -- The passion before the passion : anticipatory allusions to Jesus' fate of rejection, suffering, and death -- The Lukan last supper : text and interpretation -- The passion narrative within its Lukan framework -- The death of Jesus proclaimed -- The pattern of proclamation within a Jewish context.
Summary: "Through an exegetical analysis of the passion references in Luke and Acts, this book shows how Luke presents the death of Jesus both as a mechanism of atonement within God's plan of salvation and as a marker of Jesus' identity as the messiah. In the process, the book also helps to locate Luke's thought within the broader landscape of first century Jewish and Christian practice and belief"--Back cover.
