B 76 Peace in Paul and Luke£2.77
In the search for the central elements of New Testament theology, it is somewhat surprising that few suggest ‘peace’ as a controlling idea. The OT prophets frequently anticipated a ‘new covenant of peace’ and both Paul and Luke believe this was inaugurated by Jesus.
This wide-ranging study looks carefully at the texts involved and demonstrates that, according to the witness of Paul and Luke, peace is not a supplement to New Testament theology and spirituality—it is at the very centre.
