Summary Speech and silence are inseparably linked. Still, few scholars have explored how narrative intersections of speech and silence function rhetorically in the Gospel of Luke. Using conceptual tools from narratology and reader-response criticism, this study demonstrates how speech and silence are both significant themes within the Gospel and significant tools used in its telling
