The Death of Jesus in Luke-Acts

Full Product Description

The death of Jesus is of central importance in all four New Testament gospels. For centuries much attention and scholarship have been devoted to both the historical and theological aspects of this event. Recent years, however, have witnessed new ways of studying these texts. In The Death of Jesus in Luke-Acts, Joseph B. Tyson applies literary-critical methods to the two New Testament writings attributed to Luke. His focus is on the death of Jesus, the most dramatic segment of the Gospel of Luke and the event of fundamental significance in Acts. Tyson's clear treatment of Luke's view of the growing opposition to Jesus from the Jewish leadership and his discussion of the circumstances that ultimately led to the crucifixion of Jesus by the Romans provide a deeper understanding of these two important texts. His careful analysis of the ways in which Luke differs from Matthew and Mark helps establish Luke's uniqueness as a literary chronicler of events. The resulting study offers an original interpretation of Luke's views of the death of Jesus and makes an important contribution to Lukan and New Testament scholarship.

The Death of Jesus in Luke-Acts by Joseph B Tyson was published by University of South Carolina Press in November 2010. The ISBN for The Death of Jesus in Luke-Acts is 9781570039621.
