Chapter Summary

The Lukan picture in Acts is dominated by the concerns of a Gentile Christianity of a later day, and the Synoptic Gospels attest only indirectly the traditions framed and transmitted by the Petrine group. The eucharistic practice of the Petrine circle is accessible only indirectly, by means of the Synoptic Gospels. This chapter considers how arrangements within the Temple changed in order to permit of worship by Jesus' followers, and also how the movement itself accommodated to the new situation. It also considers the traditions of the Petrine circle within the Synoptic Gospels, and-in particular-the Petrine eucharist. The Petrine cycle understood Jesus' last meal with his disciples within the context of his final purpose, and associated the meal with a unique sacrifice at the inauguration of the Mosaic covenant. Petrine practice of eucharist was responsible for the repetitive, ritual character of the meal.
