Description

This is a cogent, compelling, scholarly, insightful exegetes on the Gospel of Luke and Acts of the Apostles drawing certain 'moments' or parts, that are of extraordinary significance to Luke-Acts as a whole; exploring their meaning beyond the context in the narrative to imbue with meaning other parts of Luke-Acts. The central argument of this book is that certain 'moments' or parts, sometimes single comments and sometimes entire chapters, are of extraordinary significance to Luke-Acts as a whole; the meaning of each of these elements goes well beyond its context in the narrative to imbue with meaning other parts of Luke-Acts and often the whole. We present and explicate the momentousness of ten such 'moments'.
