Luke. A Critical Study
1993 0-7734-9326-3
Schleiermacher's Luke (1817) displays what he took to be an accurate portrayal of the Redeemer's self-proclamation within the early church. This brilliant exegetical work specializes in higher-critical techniques then emerging. In particular, his use of redaction criticism in effect serves to discover "Q" and is scarcely surpassed in Lukan studies today. This portrayal is also crucial for his epoch-making Christian Faith (1821-1822). Editor Terrence N. Tice offers emendations to the 1825 translation by Connop Thirwall and essays placing the original and translated editions in historical perspective. The considerable appartus includes an analytical index on Luke passages with references to sermons and the Life of Jesus lectures, hereby resurrecting an important work virtually inaccessible for over 130 years.
