Who is Luke?

Dr. Peter van 't Riet is a retired professor of educational psychology and now an independent Bible researcher who writes about the patterns he sees in the writing of Luke. His thesis is that contrary to the common assumption that Luke was the only non-Jewish author in the New Testament who wrote for Christian gentiles, the person Luke was Jewish. Listen in as he explains ideas he writes about in the book titled The Jewish character of the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles.

In this Round Table Talk, Dr. Yeshaya Gruber and Dr. Peter van 't Riet discuss the Jewishness of Luke and his writings. Among many other things they discuss Narrative Theology, an ancient Jewish worldview in conflict, and reading Jewish ideas across millennia.
