In this expanded version of her doctoral dissertation from McMaster University, Wendel (New Testament, Briercrest College, Canada) looks at the Jesus movement in the first century CE and the how's and why's of this group's appropriation of the Jewish scriptures, although the group was composed primarily of non-Jews. She does so by comparing the writings of the New Testament attributed to Luke with the writings of Justin Martyr (an early Christian apologist considered a saint by many Christian denominations)--analyzing treatment of the theme of "a privileged relationship" to the Jewish texts.

Although scholars often assume that Luke and Justin similarly claim the sacred texts of Jews for the non-Jewish church, this book offers a fresh analysis that uncovers significant differences between their respective depictions of the relationship between Christ-believers and the Jewish scriptures.
