This volume comprises studies by Joel B. Green on the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles. These essays contribute to our understanding of the theological and narrative unity of Luke-Acts by pursuing a variety of topics including conversion, happiness, poverty and wealth, prayer, miracles, baptism, Mary the mother of Jesus, and Christology.
This collection of essays by Joel B. Green draws together studies on Luke's theology over a thirty-year period – from the early days when many scholars questioned whether one might refer to Luke as a »theologian,« to contemporary studies pursuing a variety of approaches to discerning Luke's message. These essays contribute to our understanding of the theological and narrative unity of Luke-Acts by pursuing a variety of topics (e.g., salvation, wealth and poverty, baptism, resurrection, and conversion) and more focused examinations of selected Lukan texts, such as the birth narrative, Jesus's crucifixion, Jesus's ascension, the Pentecost episode, and the stories of Cornelius and Lydia.
