The Allusive Use of Romans in Luke 3:7-11

Lk 3:7d-9 is usually regarded as one of the least controversially identified fragments of the so-called Q Source. The level of verbal agreement between Mt 3:7d-10 and Lk 3:7d-9 is extremely high. Consequently, this text seems to be one of the best candidates for the reconstructed, purportedly Galilean ‘Q material’, which was allegedly almost verbatim copied in this fragment by both Matthew and Luke. However, a close intertextual analysis of Lk 3:7d-11 reveals that it contains a number of typically Pauline ideas, which were in an almost consistently sequential way borrowed from the Letter to the Romans. In fact, this letter presented Paul’s Gentile gospel in Jewish terms in the prospect of his travel to Jerusalem. Therefore, Luke sequentially used its main ideas in Lk 3:7d-11 to present narratively Paul’s Gentile gospel as it was referred by the Apostle in Jewish terms to the Jerusalem community. In this way, Luke illustrated the main thought of Gal 2:2bc in his more general allusive reworking thereof in Lk 3:3-11. This observation seriously undermines the hypothesis of the existence of the Q Source. On the other hand, it points to great literary, albeit allusive dependence of the Gospel of Luke upon Paul’s most important letters, especially Galatians and Romans.

The Jacob Narratives: An E-Stratum Text?

This paper reexamines the Jacob narratives in Genesis 25-35 in relation to recent critical reappraisal of Pentateuchal Source criticism. It accounts for recent problems in pentateuchal source theory, e.g., Wellhausen’s own confusion concerning the differentiation between J and E sources, the reconceptualization of the sources as strata that entail both authorial and redactional composition, and the recent recognition that J cannot date to the ninth or tenth century as Wellhausen and von Rad respectively noted, but must instead date to the late-monarchic or even the exilic period as recent scholars have proposed. Analysis of the Jacob narrative demonstrates that the core of the narrative in Genesis 25-35 presupposes a northern Israelite and Aramean setting throughout and that the narrative addresses issues pertinent to the northern Israelite kingdom in the late-tenth through the eighth centuries B.C.E., e.g., tensions within the tribal structure of the northern kingdom of Israel, including Judah, which was a vassal during the reigns of the Omride and Jehu monarchs; its conflicted relations with the Arameans and the Edomites, the status of the sanctuary at Beth El; and the status of key cities, such as Sukkot, Mahanaim, and Penuel. The analysis will also note the Judean redactional framework in which the narrative appears, i.e., the Rebekah rendition of the endangered matriarch motif in Genesis 26; the polemical portrayal of the rape of Dinah in Genesis 34; and the burial of Isaac in Genesis 35:27-39. The paper concludes that the Jacob narrative is an early E or Ephraimite narrative that was taken south following the destruction of northern Israel and edited for placement in a later J or Judean stratum of the early pentateuchal text.

Pauline Ideas Explaining the Census under Quirinius in Luke 1–2

The Lucan Infancy Narrative (Lk 1-2) contains material which evidently does not originate from the Gospel of Mark. Scholars therefore wonder what the origin of this material could be: oral traditions, some written sources, or simply the evangelist’s literary creativity. A close intertextual analysis of this section against the background of Paul’s letters reveals that it in fact contains a number of Pauline ideas and motifs, which were creatively reworked and sequentially used by the evangelist. This intertextual approach provides explanations for several surprising features of the Lucan text, such as the presentation of Nazareth as a city (Lk 1:26). Moreover, it offers an adequate literary solution to the well-known exegetical problem of the Lucan dating of the census under Quirinius (Lk 2:2) to the time of Herod, the king of Judaea (Lk 1:5).
