A Study of Luke's Socio-Geographical Universalism in Acts 14,8-20

di Dean Philip Bechard

Analecta Biblica 143

Paolo fuori le mura. Studio di Dean P. Bechard. Si tratta di una versione riveduta della dissertazione dell'autore, che riesamina la forma e la funzione di Atti 14,8-20 nel contesto letterario del primo viaggio missionario (Atti 13,1-14,28). Viene data un'attenzione particolare ai riferimenti socio-geografici.
This study, a revised version of the author's dissertation, re-examines the form and function of Acts 14:8-20 within the literary context of the "first missionary journey" (Acts 13:1 -14:28). A review in Chapter One of prior attempts to clarify Luke's obscure delineation of the journey's itinerary clears the way for a new approach that explores the exegetical significance of the travel notices by situating the journey within Luke's implied image of the inhabited world. Chapter Two identifies the Lystran episode (Acts 14:8-20) as the climax of Paul's first journey, whose activity in three mission fields not only completes the divinely appointed "work" of the mission but also fulfills the terms of Paul's commission as the apostle "to the nations". Special attention is given to those socio-geographical references whose placement at key moments in the story underscores their need for further investigation. Chapter Three confirms Luke's social geography. This pattern not only documents Luke's general interest in ethnographic issues but also places him in the company of other ancient authors with similar interests. In order to situate the jour­ney into Lycaonia within Luke's geographical horizon, the study then explores how Luke's image of the world was informed by two distinct traditions.
