Chapter Summary

Luke's writings are characterized by a special emphasis on salvation, not to be found in Mark and Matthew; it is a major unifying theme throughout the entire work of Luke. In fact, a considerable part of Luke's soteriology was not developed by him, but was largely taken over from his sources. In order to get a clearer picture of Luke's soteriological vesture, the various layers ought to be taken off by means of asking certain questions: Which terminology does Luke use to compose his soteriology? Where in his work are soteriological terms and expressions used? In what context are they deployed? Where did he get these expressions from? What sources were used and what is the sociohistorical background of the expressions used? How are these expressions used or deployed in his work? What is their function and how are they (re)interpreted by Luke?

Keywords: Luke's soteriology; Luke's writings; salvation
