Chapter Summary

Luke is more of a poet, an artist and a narrator with great skill in composing a story, giving us the history of the church in the first century by means of pictures, lively, dramatic and broad scenes and fragments of scenes. And so he acts as an evangelist. He uses history as a tool for his theology. This is a mostly undisputed fact among New Testament scholars today, even if some scholars do not believe, that Luke ever intended to write history. It is easy to recognize that we cannot divorce the historian from the theologian, when dealing with the question of the law in Luke and Acts. Biblical theology means to Luke the interpretation of the Scriptures, it is scriptural theology. Luke cannot add anything to the Scriptures, anything having in itself the rank of the Word of God or even the acts of God.
