In the Gospel of Luke, the aged Simeon foresees the future opposition which Jesus will face (2.34-35) and concludes his ominous oracle with a vivid description of the final outcome of Jesus' ministry: '...so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed' (2.35). Bullard presents an investigation of the narrative and Christological significance of this 'revelation of thoughts' in the ministry of Jesus, especially as this revelation is demonstrated and fulfilled in Jesus' ability to know the thoughts in the hearts of those whom he encounters throughout the Gospel. Bullard first explores a number of potential literary parallels to Jesus' knowledge of thoughts in Greco-Roman and Jewish sources. He then undertakes a narrative- and redaction-critical study which spans the Gospel in order to provide a full description of the 'revelation of thoughts' in Jesus' ministry. What Jesus knows and how he knows it are fundamental features of his identity, governing how he relates to others in the narrative.
Yet the issue of whether, or how, Jesus' knowledge of thoughts fits into Luke's overall Christological portrait has been given only superficial attention.
Bullard offers an account of the Christological significance of Jesus' knowledge that makes sense of both its internal narrative development and external literary parallels.
Eggen berättar om dina sår
Och jag lever på mina tårar
Den som räddar en hjälte från såret
kommer att prisas på en gravsten
I den tomma matkorgen bakom mig
ligger en bok som tar ett liv
Rör inte pistolen
Om du gör det
vidrör du tragedin där godheten besegras
I en tid när det goda förbrukats av en minoritettvingas jag stanna kvar
djupt i en annans öde
och ständigt bära mitt leende i fickan
Jag kan inte hoppa över denna tid
resten av mitt liv
inte heller tvinga vintern att genast dö i våren
Smärta är något
de mäktiga givit oss
Den liknar en sådd
som närs av tårar
döljer mitt namn, kommet ur vanmakt
Å gi av seg selv
