Prof Steve Walton Inaugural Lecture
Doing theology Lukewise: Luke as theologian and storyteller
There are a wide variety of approaches to ‘doing theology’, that is, reflecting and speaking of God and God’s ways. Luke, author of 25% of the New Testament, offers us a model which centres on storytelling—telling the story of Jesus in his Gospel, and the story of the church in his second book, the Acts of the Apostles.
This lecture will look at key features of how Luke uses narrative to ‘do theology’, both drawing out principles of Luke’s approach, and looking at how particular parts of his Gospel and Acts communicate about God and God’s ways. This study will illuminate ways in which Christians today can reflect on Scripture and engage with it in expounding the Christian faith in and for today’s world.
