Description - Where the Eagles are Gathered by Steven L. Bridge

Although many scholars consider Luke 17:22-37 to be "the most important eschatological passage in Luke-Acts," few agree on the precise meaning of the enigmatic proverb which forms its conclusion (Luke 17:37). Generally, Jesus' logion is taken to convey a macabre image of impending judgement. However, this study offers fresh literary, redactional and historical evidence to suggest that Luke recast Jesus' saying in order to describe something much more glorious - the deliverance of the elect. Examination of the material elsewhere in Luke-Acts corroborates Luke's expectation of an ethereal reunion and suggests that this hope constitutes the most characteristic feature of Lukan eschatology.
