For Luke, argues Turner, the Spirit came upon Jesus in order to endow him with the power and wisdom to purge Israel and initiate its restoration. Likewise, the Spirit came upon the early Christian community, not merely to empower it for mission but principally to reshape it in fulfilment of the hopes expressed in Luke 1-2. Thus the Spirit is no mere added gift, but looks towards the salvation of the community as well as for its witness. This substantial study of Luke's theology is also a sympathetic critique of the classical Pentecostal view of the Spirit.>
