Good thoughts. It does feel like scholars want to choose one of several themes in the NT and make it THE key idea. I look forward to you describing how these multiple themes fit together in the NT, in future blogs.

Excellent thought for a series!

Could you also include some brief comments about the strengths or weaknesses of the commentaries, such as exegesis or theology or what have you?

Worth noting that Luz is translated into English...
