Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book The Development of Christology during the First Hundred Years presents the figures of speech used by the Lukan Jesus. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. The Lukan account of Jesus' birth naturally has christological significance. Luke 1:26-31 is the first part of the narrative of the annunciation of the birth of Jesus which follows the common scriptural pattern used for theophanic birth announcements: God/the angel appears; the immediate reaction of the person is given; the name of the person is called; reassurance is offered to the person; announcement of the birth; the name of the child is given; a prediction of the child's future destiny; an objection is raised; a sign or reassurance is given; the response to the theophany is told, for example, Gen 16, 17; Luke 1:5-23. Verses 26-31 encompass the first six components of this stereotyped form of birth announcements.
