Item description for Luke 1: A Commentary on the Gospel of Luke 1:1-9:50 (Hermeneia: a Critical and Historical Commentary on the Bible) by Francois Bovon, Christine M. Thomas & Helmut Koester...

Overview
This is the first of a three-volume commentary on the Gospel of Luke, covering the birth narratives through the Galilean ministry of Jesus. The introduction covers the text-critical questions of the Gospel, as well as its canonization, language, structure, origin, and theological profile. Bovon argues that Luke is not a direct student of Paul, but represents a specific form of the Pauline school in the third generation of the churches. The author also treats how the Gospel was used in later generations: writers from the early church, the Middle Ages, and the Reformation. He includes excursuses on "The Virgin Birth and the History of Religions," "The Devil," "The Word of God," and "Forgiveness of Sins."

Publishers Description
Volume one of three -- birth narratives through the Galilean ministry of Jesus.

Reviews - What do customers think about Luke 1: A Commentary on the Gospel of Luke 1:1-9:50 (Hermeneia: a Critical and Historical Commentary on the Bible)?

Luke with a ContinentalTwist  Apr 7, 2007
D. A. Carson believes that Bovon is as deep exegetically and more seminal theologically than any other commentary on Luke (New Testament Commentary Survey, page 54. However, Bovon holds that Luke represents a specific form of the Pauline school in the third generation of churches, thus dating it rather late."
