Item description for On the Road Encounters in Luke-Act (Paternoster Biblical Monographs) (Paternoster Biblical Monographs) by Octavian Baban & Karl Olaf Sandnes...
Overview Baban argues on theological and literary grounds that Luke's on-the-road encounters, especially those belonging to the post-Easter period, are part of his complex theology of "the Way." Jesus' teaching and that of the apostles is presented by Luke as a challenging answer to the Hellenistic reader's thirst for adventure, good literature and existential paradigms.
Publishers Description Contemporary reconstructions of Luke's theology of the Way should include in a more conscientious manner the contribution of Luke's post-Easter "on the road" encounters (the Emmaus, Gaza, and Damascus road narratives). This book argues that Luke follows here the rules of Hellenistic mimesis (imitation), many of which are illustrated in the novels, dramas, and history treatises of his time. Filtering these rules through his own theology and literary taste, he represents, in the end, the history and the proclamation of the early church, in an attractive and challenging manner, inviting his readers to good literature and to captivating spiritual experiences.
