Abstract


Part of a larger study of narrative strategy in the Gospel of Luke, this article makes use of Bakhtin's criteria of locus, form, aand degree as an investigative tool to explore the intertextual presence of texts, from the Hebrew Bible in Luke 1 and 2. to begin with, the presence f these texts is identified by name, quotation, and near-quotation in the gospel text. Having once established that, parallels in the use of form and sayings are identified between the older texts and the new host texts.
