Beskrivning

The Acts of the Apostles is the second volume in the two-part writing scholars call Luke-Acts.

It continues the story begun in the Gospel of Luke, showing how the Good News offered by Jesus was eventually extended »to the end of the earth,» so that Gentiles as well as Jews came to share in the blessings of God.

This commentary treats Luke-Acts as an apologetic history.

It takes with equal seriousness Luke's literary artistry and his historical interests, fitting his methods comfortably within the ancient standards of historiography.

This perspective illustrates in particular that Luke's historical narrative serves a definite religious intent.

Tracing that intent through the specific contours of Luke's story is the special contribution of this commentary.

This series presents fresh translations and modern expositions of all the books of the New Testament.

Written by an international team of Catholic biblical scholars, it is intended for biblical professionals, graduate students, theologians, clergy, and religious educators.

The volumes present basic introductory information and close exposition, with each author adopting a specific methodology while maintaining a focus on the issues raised by the New Testament compositions themselves. [Språk: Engelska] Häftad
