In the four chapters contained in this work, Andreas Lindemann presents 16 studies of the Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles. In the first chapter, he interprets central texts in the Gospel according to Mark. The second chapter deals with the Q source, parallel texts in the Gospel of Luke and Acts (speeches, miracle stories, meal stories) and texts about Christian life in Jerusalem and the beginnings of the mission to the Gentiles.

In the third chapter, the author focuses on theological problems in the Gospel of John, the relationship of the community to the "world," the significance of Moses and of biblical law. The book concludes with studies on the question of a "theology of the synoptic gospels," the theological exegesis of miracle stories and the image of Jesus in the gospels, in particular regarding Jesus' relationship to the people outside of Israel. Each chapter contains a survey of the recent discussion of the topics since the first publication of the studies. The intention of the exegetical work is to show how it can contribute to theology and to church life.
