Luke - Historian and Theologian examines the theology of Luke and the distinctive message found in his Gospel.
Taking into account both Luke's Gospel and Acts, Marshall makes three suggestions. First, that Luke's faith rested on the events associated with the work of Jesus and the apostles, hence the historical accounts found in his writings. Second, that the key concept in Luke's theology is 'salvation,' understood as both a present possession and a foretaste of future blessings. Third, that Luke was an Evangelist or preacher concerned to lead people to Christian belief on the basis of a reliable record of the historical facts.
'Highly recommended to all serious students of the New Testament.'
- F. F. Bruce
