Chapter Summary

This chapter reviews scholarship in two categories. The first section offers a survey of scholarly commentary on Acts 16:6–10. The second section treats studies that have examined Luke’s use of dream-visions. The studies surveyed in this book have examined Luke’s dream-visions from a variety of perspectives. Wikenhauser provided comparative studies according the canons of the religionsgeschichtliche Schule. Dreams and visions in the Bible have been examined as part of a larger interest in contemporary theology or psychology in the work of Benz, Sanford, and Kelsey. The more prominent scholarly examinations of dreamvisions in Luke-Acts have emphasized form-critical concerns (Hanson and Day). Finally, some more recent studies have looked into the function of some of the dream-visions in Luke’s narrative (Kelley, Squires, and Handy). Despite some critical issues noted above, all of these treatments offer helpful insights.

Keywords: Acts 16:6–10; contemporary theology or psychology; Luke’s dream-visions; religionsgeschichtliche Sch; scholarly commentary; Wikenhauser
