Abstract:
This study investigates the christological significance of Jesus' prayer-life in Luke-Acts. It is maintained that Luke's peculiar interest in Jesus' prayers relates to his depiction of Jesus as the Praying Eschatological Deliverer who is event This perspective is established by means of a study of inter-testamental Judaism and its belief in human, heavenly intercessors. It is found that, while Luke's view of Jesus' prayer-life is similar, he makes a distinctive contribution to NT ch Furthermore, Luke intimates by means of his redaction throughout the gospel, and states explicitly through his use of Stephen's vision in Acts 7:55-56, that Jesus prayed in this life as the heavenly Intercessor come to earth; he now continues to.
