This course is a study of the theological, socio-cultural, and political dynamics of Luke-Acts and attempt to correlate this study with the life of the modern church. The biblical study will focus on methods of interpreting Luke-Acts with special attention to the literary, intertextual, and social analyses. Among the foci will be how similarities and differences between the Lucan models of God in relation to humanity and the world can enable modern Christians to envision God in relation to humanity and the world; and how our understanding of the Lucan vision can be appropriated into our constructs of reality.
