Chapter Summary

The thesis that the Lukan special material constituted a special source, was first stated by P. Feine. According to him this source was written by Jewish Christians in the church of Jerusalem about A.D. 67. It is important to note that the birth stories of Lk I-2 were included. The classic theory of Proto-Luke was stated by B.H. Streeter and elaborated in some detail by V. Taylor. They began with the verifiable assertion that fairly faithful extracts from Mark had been inserted into the existing framework of the non-Markan material, but the account of how and why this happened reads almost like a novel. One main reason for assuming an earlier tradition contained in the Lucan writings is the fact that much of the proclamation seems to be addressed to Israel.
