Abstract

This study explores the relation between violence and the biblical God, asking whether there is a dissociating borderline between violence and God or whether violence and God belong together in biblical tradition. The textual focus for this study is Luke 13, which begins with words of Jesus regarding calamity of various kinds and ends with one of several Lukan laments for Jerusalem, in which catastrophe is interpreted as divine judgment.
