This work explores the political activity of the Spirit of God in Luke’s Gospel. It argues that, in Luke, the Spirit is the driving force in the life and work of Jesus’ movement that challenges and subverts the status quo of the empire. A postcolonial and cultural analysis of the selected texts such as Lukan canticles, the passion and resurrection narratives, etc., demonstrates that the Spirit empowers counter social formation at the margins and faithful resistance to empire.
