The purpose of this volume is to gather together recent research by leading scholars on the interpretation of embedded Jewish scripture texts (quotations or allusions) in Luke's Gospel. While a diversity of methods is welcomed, contributors are encouraged to consider the function of embedded scripture texts in the context of the Gospel as a self-contained narrative written and read/heard in its early Christian setting. Essays on the function of scripture in the compositional history of the Gospel are also welcome, but they should take into account how the host narrative affects the meaning of embedded texts and/or vice versa. It is the aim of this volume (and series) to include not only narrative critics, but also those who are oriented toward more traditional historical-critical approaches with an aim at integration. Narrative-critical approaches have contributed significantly to our understanding of both Gospels as stories and the formation of Christianity as a religion. This volume (and series) attempts to direct the those insights onto the influence of the Jewish scriptures and their exegetical traditions.
