Luke intended to provide an "orderly account" of the words and deeds of Jesus. Yet the Third Gospel is much more than an historical record; it is a living word addressed to both first century believers and the contemporary followers of Jesus. This commentary on Luke provides a tool for understanding what Luke was proclaiming to his first century audience. Questions and reflections at the end of each chapter further assist readers in applying the Word of God to the here and now of contemporary living.
Individuals seeking a readable explanation of the Third Gospel and parishes searching for a well-written format for studying Luke will find A Commentary On The Gospel Of Luke a good blend of contemporary biblical scholarship and ideas for adult faith sharing groups.
