The Character and Purpose of Luke's Christology
This book explains why Luke said what he did about Jesus in his earthly ministry in his gospel and about his work from heaven in Acts. Scholars have argued that Luke's christology is haphazard and lacks unity, that it is incompatible with the Gospel of Mark and with Paul's writings, and that Jesus is of subordinate rank to God. Buckwalter shows a unity, a compatibility with Mark and Paul, and for Jesus a divine rank equal to God. Luke's christology is by careful design: he portrays the exalted Jesus as God's co-equal.
