Chapter Summary

It goes without saying that the soteriology of Acts cannot be divorced from soteriology in Luke's Gospel. This chapter concentrates on how the theme unfolds in Acts. The portrayal of the soteriology of the Lukan double work could conveniently be brought together under the umbrella term "salvation". The chapter deals with two focal points of the ellipse: the Saviour of salvation, and the salvation of the Saviour. Luke's soteriology cannot be discussed without taking its Christology into account. These two focal points form flip sides of each other, such that Christology is the prerequisite for understanding soteriology. The chapter also deals with the general conditions of a Lukan Christology that have a bearing on Luke's soteriology. It discusses the salvific profile of Jesus in Luke-Acts in a more specialized way.

Keywords: Lukan Christology; Luke's Gospel; salvation; soteriology
