Justification in Lukan Theology
MetadataShow full item record
This dissertation argues that Luke has a conscious and detectable theology of justification which can be seen explicitly in Luke 18:9-14 but subtly permeates the narrative. After a brief history of research, the dissertation includes two exegetical chapters dealing with Luke 18:9-14 and its immediate context. Next, the theme of justification is traced throughout Luke in connection with two other significant Lukan themes - the Kingdom of God and eschatological reversal. A brief conclusion brings the strands of argument together. Paul's sermon at Pisidian Antioch (Acts 13), significant because of the appearance of justification, is thoroughly exegeted in an appendix.
