The Gospel of Luke
The Gospel of Luke is undoubtedly a masterfully woven narrative filled with skillful characterizations and beautiful poetic verse. Contained within its chapters are some of the most theologically significant parables in the Christian community to this day. It is the first of a two volume work comprised of this Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles. Luke, in his Gospel, offers his audience the history of humanity, particularly of Israel, culminating in the life and death of Christ, as told through a deep and richly theological lens. A clear understanding of the issues and stories within the Gospel of Luke and what follows in the Acts of the Apostles is essential to a solid and enriching engagement with Christian history and tradition.
