Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Afterlife Imagery in Luke's Story of the Rich Man and Lazarus contains the table of contents, acknowledgments, and a note on translations. The book studies in detail the afterlife scene in the story of the rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31). The description of the afterlife is related, on the one hand, to the overall Hellenistic cultural milieu and, on the other hand, to Luke’s eschatological views.

Keywords: afterlife imagery; Hellenistic cultural milieu; Lazarus; Luke's story; rich man
