The Revelation of the Messiah
The Christological Mystery of Luke 1-2 and Its Unveiling in Luke-Acts
Cambridge University Press 2023
In the first two chapters of Luke’s Gospel, characters acknowledge Jesus as Messiah, Son of God, and Lord. Such a high Christology, however, appears incongruous with the body of the Gospel where human characters seem ignorant of Jesus’ divinity, at least until his resurrection. Here to resolve a long-standing scholarly puzzle is Caleb Friedeman—we’ll be talking about his recent monograph, The Revelation of the Messiah: The Christological Mystery of Luke 1-2 and Its Unveiling in Luke-Acts (Cambridge UP, 2023).
