Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the way that Luke and Justin each present the exegetical revelation of Christ-believers, on the one hand, and the darkening of outsiders, on the other, as evidence that the end-time promises of God are coming to fulfillment. It outlines a comparison of the following elements of their writings: 1) their common attempt to present the ability of Christ-believers to understand the Jewish scriptures as the realization of end-time promises; 2) their similar use of scriptural oracles of judgment to validate their conclusions about the "darkened" status of outsiders to the Christ-believing community; 3) their differing configurations of the distinction between insiders and outsiders to the Christ-believing community; and 4) their differing uses of prophetic traditions to provide the rationale for this division.

Keywords: Christ-believing community; exegetical revelation; God; Jewish scriptures; Justin; Luke
