Lukan Theology

I'm preparing a paper for Scriptures 3 covering the puzzling and perplexing passage preceding the passion, directly after the Lord's Supper in Luke 22.

Verses 35-38

35Then Jesus asked them, "When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?"
"Nothing," they answered.

36He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. 37It is written: 'And he was numbered with the transgressors'[b]; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment."

38The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords."
"That is enough," he replied.

If you have any thoughts, interpretations, or whatever you want to offer up, write me up a 15 page paper, or just leave a comment.
