About this product
- DescriptionVarying degrees of attention are paid to Jesus' four speeches in the Galilean ministry of the Gospel of Luke. Despite increasing interest in ancient Graeco-Roman rhetoric in biblical studies, few scholars examine the speeches from the lens of ancient rhetorical argument. In addition, with the exception of the inaugural speech in Luke 4.14-30, little attention is afforded to the relevance of the speeches for understanding larger nuances of the narrative discourse and how this affects the hermeneutical appropriation of authorial readers. In contrast, Spencer examines each speech from the context of ancient rhetorical argument and pinpoints various narrative trajectoriesGCoas associated with theme, plot, characterization, and topoiGCothat emerge from the rhetorical texture. In doing so, he shows that the four speeches function as sign posts that are integral to guiding the Lukan narrative from the backwaters of Galilee to the center of the Roman Empire.
