Despite the striking frequency with which the Greek word for kyrios (Lord) occurs in Luke\'s Gospel, this study is the first comprehensive analysis of Luke\'s use of this word. Rowe offers a careful exegetical discussion of all the passages in the Gospel that use kyrios for Jesus in order to trace the complex and deliberate development in Luke\'s narrative of Jesus\'s identity as Lord. Detailed attention to Luke\'s artistry and use of Mark demonstrates that Luke has a nuanced and sophisticated christology. For Rowe, Luke\'s use of kyrios for Jesus not only after the resurrection but throughout shows Jesus\'s close association with the God of Israel. This book, now available in paperback, was first published in hardcover by Walter de Gruyter.
