Gospel According to Luke
Pillar New Testament Commentary
Share |

In keeping with the Pillar New Testament Commentaryís distinctive character, this volume by James R. Edwards on Luke gives special attention to the Third Gospelís vocabulary and historical setting, its narrative purpose and unique themes, and its theological significance for the church and believers today. Though Luke is often thought to have a primarily Gentile focus, Edwards counterbalances that perspective by citing numerous evidences of Lukeís overarching interest in depicting Jesus as the fulfillment of Godís providential work in the history of Israel, and he even considers the possibility that Luke himself was a Jew. In several excursuses Edwards discusses particular topics, including Lukeís infancy narratives, the mission of Jesus as the way of salvation, and Lukeís depiction of the universal scope of the gospel. While fully conversant with all the latest scholarship, Edwards writes in a lively, fluent style that will commend this commentary to ministers, students, scholars, and many other serious Bible readers.
