Character & Purpose of Luke's Christologyby Douglas Buckwalter
Synopses & Reviews
This book explains why Luke said what he did about Jesus in his earthly ministry in the Gospel and about his work from heaven in Acts. Scholars have argued that Luke's christology is haphazard and lacks unity, that it is incompatible with the Gospel of Mark and with Paul's writings, and that Jesus is of subordinate rank to God. Buckwalter shows a unity, a compatibility with Mark and Paul, and for Jesus a divine rank equal to God. Luke's christology is by careful design: he portrays the exalted Jesus as God's co-equal.
An examination of Lukeâ€™s carefully designed christology, showing that he portrays the exalted Christ as Godâ€™s co-equal.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 285-318) and indexes.
