Chapter Summary

This chapter examines several texts in Luke in which the present and future manifestations of the kingdom are set in juxtaposition. It helps to illuminate the Evangelist's understanding of an important theme as it is related to other Gospel traditions and to the proclamation of Jesus. The pairing of present and future perspectives observable in Luke is itself noteworthy. A few times it represents Markan or Q traditions. Often it is a tradition peculiar to the third Gospel or is the result of Lukan alterations of the material. The latter is evident especially in the structure of certain Lukan episodes. The relationship of present and future eschatology forms the framework for Luke's 'history of salvation' theology. Luke accentuates and elaborates the framework, but he did not originate it. Professor Kümmel showed that this twofold, present and future, eschatology finds its origin in the pre-resurrection mission.

Keywords: eschatology; Gospel; Jesus; Luke; Markan traditions; Q traditions
