LUKE: Understanding God’s Universal Embrace

(2 customer reviews)



How remarkable — a Gentile who writes not just one book of the New Testament, but two.  In fact, Luke, the assumed author of both the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts, has written more than 25% of the New Testament.  A traveling companion to Paul, Luke was a physician, a man of letters, the only Gospel historian and a devout Christian. Luke’s grasp of Christ Jesus’ life and mission has influenced every missionary, every Christian who refuses to live in their bubble but sees the Gospel of Luke as a way to reach the poor in spirit as well as the poor economically.  The Gospel of Luke is the longest gospel and was either the second or third gospel written. Long thought to be the most profound Gospel for all those on society’s margins, Luke’s Gospel provides most of our much-loved parables: The Prodigal Son, Sower and the Seed, the Tares and Wheat and many more. Luke’s understanding of God and Christ Jesus illumines a God so universal and compassionate that the Christian message was seen to be too big for one person and had to reach the Gentiles.

    What an interesting and insightful lecture — such an eye-opener for me! I learned so much about the author of Luke and his unique perspective on the life of Jesus. It’s given me a lot to think about on true discipleship.

    This lecture is very informative and provided many new insights about Luke and his unique perspective. It is very clear, well-organized, and engaging. It brings familiar stories to life and gives them new meaning.
