Abstract :
At the beginning of the gospel (cf. 1:4) Luke declares his intention: to make known the validity of the elements of faith in which Theophilus had already been instructed. At the end of the book, through the process of identifying the characters the narrative brings to closure the transition from lack to realized recognition of the risen Jesus, and it indicates how this came about, namely by faith. With this connection between death and resurrection, the narrator insists on the necessity of the passion and stresses it.



Au début de l’évangile (cf. 1,4), Luc déclare son intention: faire connaître la validité des éléments de la foi dont Théophile a été instruit. À la fin du livre, par le biais de l’identification des personnages, la narration mène à sa fin la transition vers la reconnaissance pleine du Christ ressuscité, en indiquant comment: par la foi. Avec ce lien entre mort et résurrection, le narrateur insiste sur la nécessité de la passion.
