Chapter eight analyzes the fulfillment and transformation of the Davidic Covenant in Luke-Acts. Davidic themes in Luke are examined from the infancy narratives through the preaching in Acts. Attention is given to the institution narrative, in which Jesus shares His authority with the Apostles. This is solidified through the restoration of the Apostolic college and the sending of the Holy Spirit. With this authority they rule, through service, in remembrance of the paschal mystery, that is the Sacred Liturgy. Where the Liturgy is celebrated the King is present, so is the Kingdom, and so is the New Covenant.

Augustine moves toward teaching the Scriptures. He discusses the textual and rhetorical eloquence of the Sacred Authors. He speaks of three modes of communication that are present within the Sacred text that can be used to express Christian doctrine in a way that conveys information to others and deepen the teachers understanding. Eloquence is not a necessity for preacher but wisdom is the ideal. The preacher who is both wise and eloquent will do well. The preacher 's most effective, wise, and eloquent of sermons should always be his own life deeply informed by prayer. Word Count: 95
St. Thomas In the first of St. Thomas’ inaugural lectures, “This is the book”, he notes that Scripture is a document meant to teach, delight, and change souls. Next, he breaks up the book into two subcategories. One for the Old Testament explaining law, another for the New Testament explaining grace. He further develops distinctions of the books contained within the two parts. The second section of his inaugural lecture, “Watering the Hills”, discusses the height of the sacred doctrine contained within Scripture, the dignity of those who teach, the condition of those taught, and how the mingling of these comes about.
