Numerous scholars have noted various elements of literary structure in the Gospel of Luke, many of them patterned, such as chiasm. Several of these scholars have rigorously explored the significance of such structure. A common conclusion is that if Luke is consistent with other ancient writers, then the observation of some elements of patterned structure, e.g., what has already been discovered in the Gospel, suggests that there is probably considerably more. This book offers a comprehensive literary structure for the Gospel of Luke, thoroughly and critically evaluates it, and ultimately focuses on theology that may be derived from this structure. Luke's Gospel was purposefully written with theology embedded in its patterned literary structure. A critical analysis of this cyclical structure provides new windows into Luke's interpretation of the individual pericopes comprising the gospel and illuminates several of his theological interests.

Douglas McComiskey is professor of New Testament at Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia.Review:
"Luke's outline, and the structure of his central section in particular, continues to puzzle readers more so than with any other Gospel. McComiskey's proposals make reasonable sense of the outline, and significant theological applications result." Craig Blomberg, Denver Seminary "In the application of new methods of literary analysis to the New Testament the Gospel of Luke has proved to be a fruitful testing ground. Dr. McComiskey's thesis makes a significant fresh addition to this area of research with its penetrating study of the structure of the Gospel. This is one of the most original contributions to Lucan study of recent years." I. Howard Marshall, University of Aberdeen "Attention to structure is an important avenue into meaning, and McComiskey's study makes a serious contribution to the study of the structure of the Gospel of Luke. McComiskey establishes an extensive set of criteria for testing structural proposals, and applies them rigorously to his own proposal: his investment in rigorous testing is unparalleled in previous studies on the structure of Luke. Even those who are not finally persuaded by the structure in its entirety are likely to conclude that he is, nonetheless, "onto something" here. And McComiskey clearly lays out the kinds of contribution to meaning that his structure might offer." John Nolland, Academic Dean and Director of Post-Graduate Studies, Trinity College, Bristol, UK
