Synopsis: The author?s purpose is to identify the prophetic image of Jesus in Lk 4,16-30 with its special reference to the prophecies of Third Isaiah (61,1-2a and 58,6d) and the prophetic ministries of Elijah-Elisha (1 Kings 17,8-24 and 2 Kings 5,1-14). He argues that it is the intention of Luke to present Jesus in this pericope, both, as one who brings the fulfilment of Scripture and as one who experiences rejection at home, which are two characteristic elements of a prophet.
To support his arguments he cites examples from Luke (Lk 7,16; 13,33; 24,19) in which Jesus was regarded as a prophet possessing such characteristic factors already in his lifetime. The author further claims that the prophecies of Third Isaiah and the references to the healing ministries of Elijah-Elisha mentioned by Luke in his Nazareth-Pericope themselves point to the nature and functions of a prophet. Thus, by projecting Jesus as a prophet, he finally draws the barometer for the future prophetic ministries of the followers of Jesus.
