The Gospel of Luke

The Gospel of Luke

October 20

Luke sends us on a journey with Jesus, a revolutionary mission to bring down the powerful and lift up the lowly, to release the captives and heal the broken.  It’s a revolution of tearing down the boundaries of hate, and ushering in a peace where all are neighbors.  As he meets his destiny in Jerusalem to fulfill God’s promises, will we recognize the Lord? 

Join us to learn more about this Gospel, its literary style, unique stories, and message of prayer.  This course explores the Gospel's setting, the Evangelist who wrote it, and the community for which it was written. It will also introduce practices for using the Gospel in prayer and reflection about your life. No previous experience in Scripture study is necessary.
