The Davidic Shepherd King in the Lukan Narrative

Full Product Description

In Luke-Acts, Jesus can be seen to take on the attributes of the Davidic messianic shepherd king, a representation successfully conveyed through specific narrative devices. The presence of the angels at the nativity can be understood as an indication of this understanding of Jesus. Sarah Harris analyses the multiple ways scholars have viewed the Angels as characters in the narrative, and uses this as an example of how the theme of Jesus' shepherd nature is interwoven into the narrative as a whole. From the starting point of Jesus' human life, Harris moves to later events portrayed in Jesus' ministry in which he is seen to enact his message as God's faithful Davidic shepherd, in particular, the parable of the Lost Sheep and the Zaccheus pericope (19:1-10). Harris uses this latter encounter to underline her thesis that Jesus may be hailed as a King by the crowds as he enters Jerusalem, but he is not simply a king. He is God's Davidic Shepherd King, as prophesied in Ezekiel 34, who brings the gospel of peace and salvation to the earth.
