Luke and the People of God
In this book Jacob Jervell challenges two widely held theories about Luke: that he was a representative of the institutional church, and that his writing was directed primarily at Gentile readers. He also presents much valuable insight into the growing pains of the early church, especially the relationship of the Jews to the Jewish Christians, and the relationship of both these groups to the Gentiles.
