This second volume of François Bovon’s three-volume commentary on the Gospel of Luke covers the narration of Jesus’ travel on the road to Jerusalem—the occasion in Luke of most of Jesus’ teachings to the disciples regarding faithfulness, perseverance, and the practice of justice and mercy. Bovon’s theological interest in Luke is highlighted here: as he declares in the preface, “I wish to examine his Gospel with the sober reserve of a scholar and with the confidence of a believer. For I hope in this manner to arrive at genuine understanding.” Also distinctive is Bovon’s attention to the history of interpretation of this Gospel through time.
