9781589832053: The We Passages in the Acts of the Apostles: The Narrator as Narrative Character (Studies in Bibilical Literature) (Studies in Biblical Literature)

This book explores the narrative significance of the we passages in Acts within the boundaries of acceptable ancient grammatical practice. It contends that the occasional first-person plural narrator represents a character whose entrance at crucial moments in Paul's career parallels the role of Barnabas, the apostle's earlier companion. Although consistent with the grammatical practice of ancient writers, the use of the we style in Acts nonetheless represents a variation of those conventions because the author of Acts wrote anonymously and never claimed personal participation in the events narrated. In analyzing the function of the narrator as narrative character, the book presents narrative literary strategy as a fruitful approach to these enigmatic texts whose narrative possibilities have in the past been subordinated to their historical potential.
