“This incisive commentary on Luke 1:1–9:50 by the premier German scholar Michael Wolter offers a fresh, independent, and sometimes bold—but always fair and informed—interpretation of the Gospel of Luke. Wolter draws from his extensive knowledge of Jewish and Hellenistic literature and culture to inform the reading of Luke’s narrative. Readers will discover here a mine of information to enrich and deepen their understanding of this Gospel.” — John T. Carroll, Harriet Robertson Fitts Memorial Professor of New Testament, Union Presbyterian Seminary
“Professor Wolter has long been known on the international scholarly scene as a careful and insightful exegete. Readers/users of this new commentary on Luke will find here good reason for that reputation. Wolter’s care with the text and theological reflection offer much to anyone interested in a close reading of the Third Gospel.” — C. Kavin Rowe, Professor of New Testament, Duke University Divinity School
“The Gospel According to Luke is stimulating and full of fresh and striking insights. Wolter interprets Luke in its historical context, and his mastery of both Greco-Roman and Second Temple sources is evident throughout the commentary. Any serious work on Luke will need to interact with Wolter’s contribution.” — Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Associate Dean, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
This is the first of a two-volume commentary on the Gospel of Luke (1:1–9:50) by the highly respected German scholar Michael Wolter. It was first published in German in 2007 as a single volume covering the whole gospel and now appears in a two-volume format in English (the second volume is not yet in print), ably translated by Wayne Coppins and Christoph Heilig. … The full commentary, when published, is sure to be a classic and significant exposition of Luke’s gospel. — Donald Senior, Bible Today (May 11, 2017)
