So, Richard and I disagree on whether or not Luke presents Jesus, however subtly, as the new eschatological high priest. I could very well be wrong in claiming so, and will be glad to admit it should the need arise. However, we do not disagree on who Theophilus is. Nor do we disagree on why Luke wrote to him. Nor on when Luke wrote.
Richard and I have been dialoguing for some time now. He has convinced me of his views on Luke-Acts. I have tried to further his efforts in some ways. This blog is such an attempt.
I look forward to Richard's thoughts on "the nature of blogging". But I have no doubt that dialogue refines thought.
Thank you, Richard, for the public acknowledgement of this blog. I hope to add profitable conversation.
