Continuing from 4, explosive Messianic politics; next, by employing the rhetorical style of 'reversal', Luke wraps Matthew via the 'plotline' of scandalous birth. Intro to Greek drama principles (very brief) to show that both the Hebraistic rules of rhetorical style and the Greek rules, are 'obeyed', to properly communicate to the audience. Focus is on the 'parallel' (a Hebrew and Greek drama requirement for plots) of the scandalous birth of John the Baptist, with his own father Zacharias (=God Remembers!) from the priestly course (house) of AbiJah (=God is My Father!), committing political suicide at the son's birth.
