Series Information
Paideia: Commentaries on the New Testament

Description: Mikeal Parsons, a leading scholar on Luke and Acts, offers a practical commentary on Luke that is conversant with contemporary scholarship, draws on ancient backgrounds, and attends to the theological nature of the texts. This commentary, like each in the Paideia series, proceeds by sense units rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Students, pastors, and other readers will appreciate the historical, literary, and theological insight Parsons provides in interpreting the Gospel of Luke.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Synoptic Gospels, Luke, Literature, Methods, Linguistics, Historical Approaches, History, Theological Approaches, Biblical Theology, New Testament Theology, Other Methods
