On the Road Encounters in Luke–Acts: Hellenistic Mimesis and Luke’s Theology of the Way
In On the Road Encounters in Luke–Acts, Baban argues on theological and literary grounds that Luke’s on-the-road encounters, especially those belonging to the post-Easter period, are part of his complex theology of ‘the Way.’ Jesus’ teaching, and that of the apostles, is presented by Luke as a challenging answer to the Hellenistic reader’s thirst for adventure, good literature, and existential paradigms.
