" While one inter­pretation of Luke 13:l0 - 17 n suggests that it is possible, another interpretation of this passage front Scripture suggests that such a conclusion drawn from Luke 13 would be incorrect. However, the article suggests that subjective points of view may influence and mar the scientific approach to the exegesis of Luke 13.
