Sintesi dell'editore

Did you know that only the Gospel of Luke contains the parables of the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son, the stories of Mary and Elizabeth in the infancy narratives, and the resurrection appearance to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus?

With its themes of Jesus' all-inclusive compassion, healing, and forgiveness, Luke's Gospel has always magnetized Christians. This unforgettable series of 12 expertly delivered talks will bring Luke's Gospel to life in your heart and mind.

You will begin by exploring the historical setting of Luke's life and writing. Come to understand Jesus' healing mission as He mends broken bodies as signs of the in-breaking of the reign of God. Next, explore Jesus' ministry of forgiveness, as exemplified in the story of a paralyzed man and in his own words of pardon from the cross.

Then, gain new understanding as you explore the parables retold in Luke. Next, investigate Jesus' inclusive mission as He welcomes all kinds of people at the table and explore the ways in which Luke features female disciples. Finally, look at Luke's themes of fulfillment of scripture and the Empowering Spirit, which Jesus bestows on his followers.

The Lucan Jesus takes on the persona of a prophet from the moment He announces his public ministry in the synagogue at Nazareth. More than any other evangelist, Luke stresses Jesus' prayerfulness. Join Sr. Reid in discovering the powerful words of the Gospel of Luke today.

Insightful, well-organized and engaging

Prof. Reid is clearly an excellent New Testament scholar and a fine teacher. She explains the historical context for Luke's Gospel while providing special insights into this Gospel's message. She strikes the right balance between faithful devotion and objective scholarship.

Too much of a liberal Protestant interpretation

There are comments that say that “perhaps Jesus was not sure what the Father wanted”. And comments that ignore the greater significance of the miracles of Jesus. Very little was related back to the OT and prophecies fulfilled by Christ.
