Summary/Abstract: The article proposes the two itineraries inside the Gospel of Luke. The firstone is gnoseologic as it tries to illumine the process of veridiction brought about by thenarrative itself, according to the narrative pact established by Luke (cf. Luke  , - ).Here, the reader is called to a continuous interpretative exercise with respect to theperson of Christ who is presented first in the Infancy narrative and then in the course ofhis ministry. The second itinerary belongs to the “reception history” and it’s connectedwith the search for Jesus (ζητέω). It regards the anthropological turn, stemming fromthe same disclosure of the historical figure of the Nazarene, the turn that leads to themanifestation of God’s truth.
