This project has its origins in a paper I wrote for Julian Hills' graduate seminar on Apocalyptic Literature in the spring of 1998. Having been assigned the Synoptic Apocalypse, I stumbled upon Luke's Eschatological Discourse and its striking conclusion-the saying about the body and eagles. I was intrigued by the variety of explanations offered by commentators, and felt the interpretation of this enigmatic saying would prove a worthy pursuit. Only later did the implications of this passage for Lukan eschatology begin to dawn on me.
