Jesus’s Understanding of Human Nature in Luke 17

By Brian Chilton Some have claimed that Jesus was not a theologian. Granted, he did not sit down and write out a systematic theology book. However, the teachings of Jesus denote a deep theology that resonated with his understanding of God, Jesus’s own identity, God’s judgment, and of God’s salvific plan. In addition, one can see Jesus’s understanding of humanity and its relationship to God. One such example of the latter is found in the Gospel of Luke 17:1–4. Jesus...
