Dr. Just's two-volume work on Luke's Gospel will bless the Christian community by showing the incarnational/sacramental theology of the text.
Just does this in two major steps, the first being his own Greek translation followed by key Greek word(s) and phrases and their meanings, grammatical studies, etc. which will clearly benefit clergy and informed lay people. Second, in the commentary section he clearly sets forward the meaning of the text in light of the historical understanding and recent scholastic views.
This is a marvelously useful set to guide the Christian who wants the most out of Luke. He will find Christ here on every page.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Matthew Gunia VINE VOICE on May 24, 2007
Arthur Just is a professor at Concordia Theological Seminary (Fort Wayne, Indiana) and teaches courses in exegesis, liturgics, homiletics, and pastoral theology. Luke 1:1-9:50 is the first of a two-volume set in the Concordia Commentary series.

Just approaches and examines the Gospel of Luke from a number of theological perspectives. He maintains an orthodox belief in Lukan authorship, not a series of "redactors" or a "Lukan community." He cites his belief that the text is primarily theological in nature (thus concerning itself not necessarily with historical fact, but with the identity and work of Jesus). Luke (along with every other book of the Bible) is Christological in nature and thus the eyewitness accounts of the person and work of Jesus are connected with Old Testament Messianic prophesies. Just believes that Luke is concerned with the Sacraments (Baptism and Holy Communion) and frequently shows where Luke provides sacramental teachings. Luke is concerned with eschatology--the end-times and the second coming of Christ. And, finally, Luke was exceedingly concerned with Catechesis--communicating Christ-centered doctrine in a manner conducive to memorization.

This last point is one of the most unique aspects of this commentary. Considering the great expense associated with producing or hand-copying a book, also considering the low literacy rate of the First Century Roman world, Just argues that most Christians would not be readers of the word, but hearers of the word. He is thus on the lookout for mnemonic devices such as alliteration, chiasm, juxtaposition, inclusio, and the like. He is also attuned to the Greek vocabulary, arguing that Luke will use certain words or phrases to signal to the hearer that they are to view a story/city/person in a particular way.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Confessional Christian (Lutheran) on April 23, 2012
Whenever I start any of Dr. Just's books I think the man is brilliant. While this is probably true, it seems that he must get paid by the page. This volume, as well as his other volume, of his commentary on the Gospel of Luke could have used an editor. He states the same thought repeatedly (many times on the same page), only occasionally in different ways. I'm happy I took a speed reading course in community college so I could skim the pages for the saliant points Dr. Just does make.

Dr. Just shines when he shows the multi-layered chiastic nature of Luke's Gospel.

Dr. Just's two volumes of Luke could easily have been condensed into a wonderfully managable one volume commentary. I haven't purchased any of the other Concordia Commentary series volumes due to my fear that CPH editors see the physical weight and size of a book as being the number one reason for asking $50.00/volume (more volumes, more money).

I view books as I do meat. One pound of filet mignon is so much more valuable (and tasty) than ten pounds of chuck roast. Sure there's good red meat in both, but what to do with all the fat of the latter. Kretzmann's commentary on Luke is so much more valuable than Just's two-volume commentary. While you may want to have both, you must weigh the cost.
