The Original Language of the Lukan Infancy Narrative


T&T Clark 2004

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Some scholars have claimed that the Greek of the Lukan infancy narrative (chapters 1–2) displays numerous Semitic features. The majority of recent scholarship assumes that such features stem from an imitation of the Septuagint (imitation theory) and that Luke relied on this written source for the infancy narrative—or at least for some parts of it. Others claim that Luke was not merely the reviser or compiler of his source; rather, he rewrote the source employing his own style and language for his own purpose. In The Original Language of the Lukan Infancy Narrative, Jung examines the arguments most commonly put forward by both sides and considers their merits.
