'Today, Salvation has come to this House.' God's Salvation of God's People in Luke's Gospel
AbstractOne of the aspects of salvation highlighted in Luke’s Gospel is that it is both personal and social. God saves both individuals and a people, and the salvation of the one and the other are intimately linked with each other. This essay examines this dimension by looking at the stories of Mary and Zacchaeus, both of which are situated at strategic places in Luke’s narrative. The essay also seeks to shed light on the nature of salvation in Luke, showing that it is transformative, and affects identity, ethics, and relationships.
