|Title||Inheriting 'eternal life' in Luke's travel narrative [electronic resource] : redaction and narrative in Luke 9.51-19.44 /|
|Author||Reeves, Jon Mark|
|Abstract||"My overall thesis is that Luke's redaction of the 'eternal life' question (Luke 10.25; 18.18) affects a reading of the Travel Narrative by emphasizing the eschatological nature of 'eternal life' over against the life of the narrative present age, an age characterized by the rule of Rome. In the first chapter, I treat Luke's redaction of the 'eternal life' question. The main result of Luke's redaction is that it gives the affected scenes a definitive eschatological tenor. In the second chapter, I place emphasis on the answers which Luke provides to the questions. By reading these citations from Torah as functioning metonymically (Deut 5-6; Lev 19), I highlight five general thematic connections between the citations from Torah and Luke's Travel Narrative. In the final chapter, I return to my analysis of Luke in order to trace the effects of Luke's 'eternal life' redactions on the plot of the Travel Narrative section"--Abstract.|
