This book is a challenge to both historical-critical and 'pure' literary-critical approaches to the subject of the Holy Spirit in Luke-Acts through a new and holistic perspective, 'dynamic biblical narrative criticism'. By means of this methodology, Hur attempts to explore the Lukan Spirit within the broader repertoire of biblical narrative, the Jewish Bible. This approach allows Hur to elucidate the narrative role of the Spirit in Luke-Acts in terms of point of view, characterisation, plot, and function and their effects on the implied reader. This wide-ranging study also considers theological implications raised for today's readers.ContentsPreface Abbreviations Ch. 1 Introduction Retrospect: Previous Studies of the Holy Spirit in Luke and Acts Prospect: Towards a More Holistic Reading of the Holy Spirit in Luke-Acts Ch. 2 The Usage of Ruah/Pneuma in the Extratext of Luke-Acts as Literary Repertoire The Hebrew Bible The Septuagint The Old Testament Apocrypha God's Spirit and Other Observations about the Jewish Bible Excursus: The Usage of Ruah in the Qumran Literature with Special Reference to 1QM, 1QM, CD and 1QH Ch. 3 Narrator, Point of View and the Holy Spirit Definitions and 'Narrative Communication Situation'The Lukan Narrator's Point of View with Special Reference to the Holy Spirit Ch 4 Character, Presentation and the Holy Spirit The Narrative Theory of Character The Narrative Theory of Characterization The Holy Spirit As a Divine Character The Character-Presentation of the Holy Spirit in Luke-Acts Ch. 5 Plot, Function and the Holy Spirit Definition The Plot of Luke-Acts The Characterization of the Holy Spirit in Relation to the Causal Aspect of the Plot Ch. 6 Concluding Remarks on 'A Dynamic Reading of the Holy Spirit in Luke-Acts' Implications App. I The Presentation of the Spirit of the Lord/God in the Jewish Bible App. II The Presentation of the Holy Spirit in Luke-Acts App. III The Holy Spirit and its Related Characters in Luke-Acts App. IV The Comparison of the Phrase 'Holy Spirit' Narrated in the Synoptic Gospels Bibliography Index of Biblical References Index of Authors
