Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the theology, implicit and explicit, in the narratives about sea storms in Acts 27 and Luke 8:22-25. It attempts to answer two questions: what theological content would ancient Mediterranean listeners have heard in these narratives, and how do the theological implications of these two stories fit into the Lukan whole. What theological content would an ancient listener have heard in this narrative? The attempted answer to this question is developed in three stages: composition, comparative materials, and context. The theological perspectives of Acts 27 and Luke 8:22-25 fit nicely into the Lukan whole. Three dimensions of the overall vision of Luke-Acts can be employed to demonstrate this claim: the divine plan, the use of foreshadowing in Luke-Acts, and the use of correspondence between events in Luke and those in Acts.

Keywords: ancient Mediterranean listeners; Luke-Acts; sea storms
