Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the exegetical discussion of Luke 16: 1- 3. It argues that the parable of the unjust steward (Luke 16: 1-9) and the verses attached to it (vv. 10-13) together deal with the matter of the Christian's wise use of money, possessions, and/or material goods. The background for this teaching is the coming of the kingdom of God. To express the thrust of Luke 16:1-13 more succinctly, the passage might be entitled "Christian Stewardship in an Eschatological Key" or "Stewardship and the Kingdom". The chapter examines the passage on its own terms as much as possible. It shows that even on its own terms, that is, temporarily isolated from its Lucan context, Luke 16: 1-13 is about the faithful stewardship of material possessions against an eschatological background. The approach adopted here is to concentrate on the key interpretive issues in Luke 16:1-13.

Keywords: Luke 16:1-13; parable of the unjust steward
