This volume offers a comprehensive overview of one of the four New
Testament gospels and brings a unique approach to the genre of
Bible commentary. Featuring distinct Jewish and Christian voices in
respectful conversation, Amy-Jill Levine and Ben Witherington, III
methodologically break new ground in exploring why scholars
disagree on questions of history (what actually happened, what is
authorial invention, how do we address different versions of the
same account), literature (what does this story tell us about Jesus
and Peter, Mary Magdalene and Judas, among other characters), and
theology (what can we say about resurrection and divine justice, or
about Jesus as the Messiah). They show how Luke has been used to
create both tragedy and hope, as well as to promote sexism,
anti-semitism, and religious intolerance, thereby raising important
questions regarding ethically responsible interpretation. This
volume will be essential reading for theologians, clergy, and
anyone interested in biblical studies and Jewish/Christian
