Where the Eagles are Gathered : The Deliverances of the Elect in Lukan Eschatology Hardback

Part of the Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement S. series

Description

Although many scholars consider Luke 17:22-37 to be "the most important eschatological passage in Luke-Acts," few agree on the precise meaning of the enigmatic proverb which forms its conclusion (Luke 17:37).

Generally, Jesus' logion is taken to convey a macabre image of impending judgement.

However, this study offers fresh literary, redactional, and historical evidence to suggest that Luke recast Jesus' saying in order to describe something much more glorious--the deliverance of the elect.

Examination of the material elsewhere in Luke-Acts corroborates Luke's expectation of an ethereal reunion, and suggests that this hope constitutes the most characteristic feature of Lukan eschatology.
