Title: Jesus’ First Trial
Subtitle: Messiah and Son of God (Luke 22,66-71)
Author(s): KILGALLEN, John J.
Volume: 80 Issue: 3 Date: 1999
Luke, according to the Two-Source Theory, read Mark. At the first trial of Jesus, that before the Sanhedrin, Mark has together, 'Messiah, Son of God'. Luke has intentionally separated the two titles. The present essay finds the explanation for separating Son of God from Messiah in the Annunciation scene of the Gospel. It is Luke’s intention that the reader understand Son of God in a way that admittedly the Sanhedrin did not. The laws of narratology indicate that Luke 1,35, a part of the Lucan introduction, be used by the reader to interpret Son of God at Luke 22,70.
