What is the literary function of centurions in the story of Luke-Acts? To answer this question, the book considers these NT texts alongside the Greco-Roman and Jewish sources that offer insights into the Roman military. It demonstrates a common perception of centurions as principal representatives of the imperial power and views their role in Luke-Acts as prototypical Gentile believers in anticipation of the Christian mission to the Empire.
