Luke, Scripture and the Partings of the Ways: A Comparative Approach

GYE, ADAM,GEORGE (2024) Luke, Scripture and the Partings of the Ways: A Comparative Approach. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.

PDF (Adam Gye, PhD Thesis)


This thesis examines how Luke uses scripture ecclesiologically to demonstrate the
church is the 'faithful' portion of Israel, and how he attempts to present the 'Way' as a school within Judaism. This goes against a tendency to argue that Luke advocates a departure from Judaism to Christianity. To make this point I compare Luke-Acts with Romans 9-11, Revelation 12 and 4QFlorilegium (4Q174) to situate him within his early Jewish environment.
