Chapter 10 in the center of Luke's Gospel serves as a good example by which the author's compositorial work directed at the reader can be illustrated. At the end of the sermon on the plain, Luke formulates his theological-practical maxim (6:46f): to hear and to do the Word of God. This is again illustrated in chapter 10 especially in the parable of the Good Samaritan and in the episode of Mary and Martha, in which instances reference is made to Stoic philosophy and ethics in a special way.
