This unique work is not a reference tool, but a teaching-learning guide to studying the Gospel According to St. Luke. The focus is on showing how rather than on telling what. Tables followed by leading questions and statements help both faculty and students to see how the evangelist adopted and adapted his sacred texts (as well as Jewish and Greco-Roman resources) in light of his convictions about and experience of Jesus. Noticing the dominance of words, themes, and patterns leads one to discover the primary concerns of the author and his readers. Observing how the Third Evangelist internally arranged his materials provides a clue as to the kind of work it is and how it was meant to function.
