This monograph attempts to answer questions posed by the Third Gospel's remarkable concern with the destruction of Jerusalem. It takes seriously the historical preface by which Luke types both his presentation of the Gospel and his readership, thus indicating the way in which he expects his work to be read. The fate of Jerusalem, attributable to the people of the city at the time of the Lord's visitation and to injustice of their rules, becomes a case in point regarding God's coming judgment upon the nation, the inhabited world, and is intended to prompt the reader to salutary, practical reflection.
