This chapter examines Luke's narrative about the death and resurrection of Jesus. Luke's fundamental concern is theological. It is the story of Christianity that he wishes to tell, and it is the Lord Jesus to whom he wishes his audience to turn. Therefore Luke remains, and intends to remain, a witness to the common apostolic faith, just as Paul and Mark before him. The four pillars of apostolic proclamation—that Christ died, that he was buried, that he rose, that he was seen—are central to Luke's narrative.
