Conflict and Authority in Luke 19:47 to 21:4

Series:

Blake R. Grangaard

Conflict and Authority in Luke 19:47 to 21:4 examines Luke's account of a verbal confrontation between Jesus and the religious leaders of Jerusalem. Professor Grangaard analyzes the role of this passage within the larger narrative and illuminates Luke's presentation of the teachings of Jesus on such topics as the payment of taxes to Caesar, the nature of life in the Resurrection, and the relationship of the Messiah to David. This confrontation over Jesus' authority provides a narrative transition between Jesus' ministry and journey (4:14-19:46) and the events of his Passion (22:1-24:53), while preparing the way for the climax of the story.
