Contents Interruption and rhetoric in ancient Greek literature -- Interrupted speech in Greek historiography : from Homer to Appian -- Interrupted speech in Jewish historiography : from Job to Josephus -- Interrupted speech in Greek novels -- The overlooked interruptions of the Gospel according to Luke -- Interrupted speech in the Acts of the Apostles -- Conclusions
Summary In the Gospel according to Luke and the Acts of the Apostles, speakers are often interrupted by emotional audiences (Luke 4:28; Acts 4:1; 7:54-57; 13:48; etc.). A comparative study of other Greek authors, from Homer to Josephus, reveals the high frequency and unique form of interruption in Luke's two volumes. Intentional interruption functions rhetorically to underscore the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the availability of salvation to the Gentiles, thus illuminating both Lukan theology and literary technique
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 300-312) and indexes
