Summary

Summary

The Gospel According to Luke X-XXIVis Volume 28A in the Anchor Bible series of new book-by-book translations of the Old and New Testaments and Apocrypha.  This is the conclusion of Joseph A. Fitzmyer's two-volume study of Luke. Included here is Fitzmyer's work on chapter 10, in which Jesus continues his journey to Jerusalem, through chapter 24, his Resurrection and appearances.  The translation relies on the commentator's familiarity with the Greek and Semitic languages, while the exegesis commands a thorough knowledge of the vast cultural, technical, and linguistic information he has gathered from an international selection of Lucan literature.  Each of the fifteen chapters here is studied and discussed in respect to the Gospel as a whole, Acts, and the Old Testament.  The two indices refer to both volumes on Luke. In "joining the spirit to the letter" and scholarship to faith, Joseph A. Fitzmyer has produced a worthy successor to hisThe Gospel According To Luke I-IX, whichTheological Studiesdescribed as "extraordinarily learned and rich...a benchmark in Lucan studies."
