about this item

Erasmus yearned to make the New Testament an effective instrument of reform in society, church, and everyday life, and to this end he composed theParaphrases, in which the words of Holy Scripture provide the core of a text that was vastly expanded to embrace the reforming “philosophy of Christ.”Paraphrase on Luke 1–10 contains the first half of Erasmus’s Paraphrase on Lukethe second half of which appeared in this series in 2003 – and completes the set of translations of theParaphrases into English.

In his Paraphrase on Luke, Erasmus expands on the original Gospel of Luke in the voice of its original author. The narrative is supplemented by Erasmus’ explications of the text’s moral, theological, and allegorical meanings and its psychological, historical, and geographical context. In addition to a fluid and idiomatic translation,Paraphrase on Luke 1–10 includes extensive annotations for the general or scholarly reader, making this a valuable and accessible resource for the study of both Erasmus and the New Testament.
