Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter presents an overview of the book Stewardship and the Kingdom of God: An Historical, Exegetical, and Contextual Study of the Parable of the Unjust Steward in Luke 16:1-13, which outlines the parable of the unjust steward. It confirms the traditional interpretation of the parable. The book justifies the interpretation of the parable of the unjust steward on the basis of Luke 16:1-13 itself and is substantiated by the literary and theological contexts. It demonstrates that the traditional interpretation of the parable is correct, even when the passage is temporarily isolated from larger levels of context in Luke's Gospel. The material Luke includes or retains on the theme of riches and poverty may be especially intended to instruct rich Christians or would-be Christians on the meaning of discipleship for their use of possessions.

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