    Jesus Is the Christ

    The Messianic Testimony of the Gospels

    by Michael F. Bird

    Entering the fray of a hotly debated issue, Michael Bird argues that the title and role of "Messiah" ascribed to Jesus is not a late addition to the four Gospels but their structural and semantic foundation. Stressing that Christianity is itself a messianic movement, Bird argues that the messianic testimony is the "mother of all Christology."

    Luke

    The IVP New Testament Commentary Series

    by Darrell L. Bock

    In Luke, Jesus proclaims "good news to the poor...freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind." More than any other, this Gospel shows Jesus' concern for the downtrodden, the oppressed and the marginalized. Darrell Bock shows why Luke's Gospel is "tailor made" for our world--a world divided along ethnic, religious, economic and political lines.

    Luke's Account of God's Unfolding Plan

    New Studies in Biblical Theology

    by Alan J. Thompson
    Series Editor D. A. Carson

    Instead of using Acts as a prooftext for contemporary debates about speaking in tongues or church government, this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume offers a biblical-theological framework meant to expose Luke's own purposes and themes. We find that Luke wanted to be read in light of both the Old Testament promises and the reign of Christ in the inaugurated kingdom of God.
