It has been a while, hasn't it?
In this episode, Nick and Allison discuss the wide-ranging topic of women in Luke/Acts, touching on various elements of the doctrine of God, the Holy Spirit and Pentecost, how we should read narrative, and commenting on the evangelical tendency to downplay narrative in the quest for 'propositional' truths.
Allison also makes Nick (makes, hah!) drink cheap red wine in honor of a certain someone. You can infer who this might be, but we ain't telling.
Resources on the topic are vast, but the best English commentary on Luke is by Joel B. Green of Fuller Theological Seminary. A standout commentary that Nick says he reads for fun. A similarly great volume on the theology of Luke is also by Green.
Resources more relevant to the topic discussed in this episode include Gospel Women: Studies of Women Named in the Gospels by Richard Bauckham as well as his Jesus and the Eyewitnesses, which makes an appearance in this episode. For a killer article, see Nijay Gupta's excellent contribution in Priscilla Papers on Mary and The Double Message by Turid Karlsen Seim.
We hope to see you at the CBE Conference in Orlando! Blessings!
