Luke 2:14 from a Jewish Christian perspective
The well-icnown Gloria in excelsis is a cryptic but thoroughly investigated text. This article critiques aspects of the prevailing exegesis of Luke 2:14. A ease is made out for reading the Gloria as a translated Hebrew text. The conventions of Hebrew poetry are taken into account and the obviously well-structured verse is interpreted against the background of information from Jewish and Jewish-Christian literature.
