Gospel of Luke

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Gospel of Luke Section plans to offer three sessions in 2017. Our first session will focus, as before, on one of the major features of the Gospel of Luke. This year we will explore the role of the Spirit in the Gospel of Luke. This session on Luke and the Spirit will feature papers by invited panelists. A second session, sponsored jointly with the Book of Acts Section, will focus on the body and embodiment in Luke-Acts. This session will consist of invited panelists who will present on a range of topics related to corporeality in Luke-Acts, focusing in particular on questions that relate to bodily experience and bodily difference. For our remaining session, we welcome paper proposals dealing with any aspect of the interpretation of the Gospel of Luke.
