Lord of the Banquet: The Literary and Theological Significance of the Lukan Travel Narrative
This bold solution to the riddle of Luke 9:51 to 19:44 is now available for the first time in a paperback edition, with a new preface by the author, a foreword by Richard B. Hays, and an index of Lukan passages.
The form and content of this central section of Luke's Gospel, that is, Jesus' journey from Galilee to Jerusalem, has long remained a puzzle. David Moessner here proposes a solution to the puzzle by carefully relating Jesus' sayings in the section (narrated speech) to the journey (the enigmatic plot). In addition, by using the intertextuality of Jesus' journey with Israel's dynamic exodus story, Moessner unlocks the mystery of Luke's portrait of Jesus.
