Overview
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.

Magnificent scholarship--how Luke develops kyrios to reveal Christ as lord and God  Jun 20, 2009
In the introduction to this book Rowe explains that he told a friend he was going to write a book on the subject of how Luke develops the word kyrios (that is, Lord) throughout his gospel. The friend gave him a "rather odd look and said something that roughly translates as, 'Hasn't that been done ad nauseam?" (p 1).

Perhaps because it seems so basic everyone simply assumes that thousands of scholars have already done this investigation. But, as Rowe points out, that just isn't so.

Rowe demonstrates how Luke uses kyrios time after time "not so much with theological propositions but with a panoply of literary and rhetorical devices that range from relatively simple, though significant, alterations of his Markan source to complex and extended paromasia. Throughout the story Luke uses kyrios so repeatedly that its reverberation within the narrative becomes the rhythm of the Gospel (p 29).

Small note: Rose does something I have rarely seen before in any biblical scholarship, which is to borrow examples from the likes of Shakespeare, or the prayer of Electra, and I think the book is much more interesting for it.

However, the actual line of his argument is utterly compelling simply by itself. The "main themes...Luke's theology of resonance and his christological focus" (p 81) is right on target. I was especially struck by Rowe's line of reasoning regarding the four Sabbath controversies in Luke.

What Rowe looks at is the cumulative effect of the gospel stories, the miracles, the disputes, all leading to the passion. This is such an intelligent way of examining the gospel that it staggers me how rarely biblical scholars actually use it. Instead, there has been, for the last two hundred years, a tendency to take one passage and beat it to death, shoving it into various shapes, trying to find a meaning it it alone.

Looking at the gospel as a whole, and examining the manner Luke uses kyrios makes a compelling case for what Luke was trying to say. What Rowe finds is that "the God of Israel is thus so concentrated in the figure of Jesus that they can share an identity...To apprehend the identity of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke is to include God, and the question, Who is God in Luke?, of necessity places Jesus at the center of the answer" (p 201).

This is a brilliant book. Highly recommended.
