Abstract

This article demonstrates that Luke, alone of the evangelists, deliberately did not mention the στέϕανος placed on Jesus’s head before his crucifixion, since the importance of his royal triumph could be acknowledged only after his resurrection and exaltation. It is therefore argued that Jesus’s real crown is to be seen in the witness of Jesus’s disciples as specially exemplified in Στέφανος, the first Christian martyr.
