Abstract

446 (Luke 12:51/Matt. 10:34) was written to correct the opinion, re- corded in Luke 2:14, that Jesus' mission was to bring 'peace on earth'. Yet the former, according to prevailing solutions of the Synoptic problem (whether one believes in Q or not) is usually held to predate the later, which comes from the special Lukan ma- terial. Of course, Garrison's speculation may be correct but with- out some attempt on his part to meet the source-critical problems it raises, it seems unlikely. This is a perplexing book in many ways. It is provoking, both intentionally and unintentionally, and can provide some valuable exegetical insights. However, it is ultimately unsatisfying. This is particularly disappointing given the promise of Garrison's previous work, Redemptive Almsgiving in Early Christianity (Sheffield: JSOT Press, 1993).
