Description : Read Now The Spirit And Suffering In Luke Acts by Martin W. Mittelstadt and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. this work illuminates the tension between divine empowering and the neglected element of the work of the spirit in contexts of opposition. this lacuna, not addressed in previous pentecostal scholarship, is at the heart of mittelstadt's exegesis. thus, jesus not only lives and ministers in the power of the holy spirit, but also experiences opposition and persecution as a man of the spirit. further, the lukan jesus not only transfers the spirit to his disciples, but also anticipates a similar fate for his followers. finally, luke forecasts that this divine enablement of the spirit, also available for future witnesses, brings with it a similar anticipation of the same rejection and opposition as was experienced by jesus and the disciples. while pentecostals owe a debt of gratitude for the pioneering work of pentecostal scholars, this book furthers their efforts by exploring the implications of spirit-led witness in luke-acts.

Description : Read Now Prophetic Jesus Prophetic Church by Luke Timothy Johnson and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. in this and every age, the church desperately needs prophecy. it needs the bold proclamation of god s transforming vision to challenge its very human tendency toward expediency and self-interest to jolt it into new insight and energy. for luke timothy johnson, the new testament books luke and acts provide that much-needed jolt to conventional norms. to read luke-acts as a literary unit, he says, is to uncover a startling prophetic vision of jesus and the church and an ongoing call for today s church to embody and proclaim god s vision for the world.

Description : Read Now The Davidic Messiah In Luke Acts by Mark L. Strauss and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. the nature of lukan christology has been much debated in recent years, with scholars claiming the pre-eminence of such categories as lord, prophet, christ, or isaianic servant. in the present work the author examines one major theme within luke's christology, that of the coming king from the line of david. a study of the lukan birth narrative and the speeches in acts reveals that luke shows a strong interest in this royal-messianic theme, introducing it into passages which are introductory and programmatic for his christology as a sermon, portraying jesus in strongly prophetic terms. the author seeks a synthesis of these seemingly conflicting royal and prophetic portraits in luke's interpretation of the old testament book of isaiah. when isaiah is read as a unity, the eschatological deliverer is at the same time davidic king (isa. 9.11), suffering servant of yahweh (isa. 42-53), and prophet herald of salvation (isa. 61), leading god's people on an eschatological new exodus. on the basis of this synthesis the christology of luke-acts is seen to be both consistent and unified, forming an integral part of luke's wider purpose in his two-volume work.

Description : Read Now Echoes Of Scripture In Luke Acts by Kenneth D. Litwak and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. litwak challenges previous studies of the use of the old testament in luke-acts as inadequate. in contrast to previous studies that consider only quotations or obvious allusions, he examines intertextual echoes of the old testament at strategic points in luke-acts, as well as quotations and allusions and echoed traditions. thus, this study's database is larger. previous studies generally argue that luke's use of the scriptures is in the service of christology. this leads to the exclusion of scriptural citations, such as those of the temptation (luke 4.1-13) which have different emphases. litwak views ecclesiology as the overall purpose behind luke's use of the old testament, but he does not skip or avoid intertextual references that may lie outside an ecclesiological function. whilst other studies contend that luke uses the old testament according to a promise-fulfillment/proof-form-prophecy hermeneutic, litwak argues that this fails to account for many of the intertextual references. other studies often subsume all of luke's use of the scriptures of israel under one theme, such as the 'new exodus', but this study does not require that every intertextual echo maps to a specific theme. rather, the many intertextual references in strategic texts at the beginning, middle and end of luke-acts, and luke's use of the texts, are allowed to dictate the 'themes' to which they relate. jsnts 282
