Conflict in Luke. Jesus. Authorities. Disciples. Minneapolis: Fortress Press, 1991

A leading specialist in synoptic gospels studies here presents a literary or narrative approach to Luke. The gospel is a story, central to which, of course, is Jesus. But intertwined with this are the stories of conflict with the Jewish authorities and the (Jewish) disciples. The major conflict is with Israel, the religious authorities at the heart of which is the issue of authority.
