It is to Luke that we are indebted for the historical account of the circumstances surrounding the birth of John the Baptist and the Lord Jesus. Luke writes to a colleague Theophilus who was evidently a citizen in a high position in Rome. Luke's account to Theophilus was not merely for his eyes but to promote an orderly account of the birth, growth, public ministry, the atoning death and ascension of the Lord Jesus as the Son of Man. I have written a summary of each of the 24 chapters of Luke. The summary I have given is intended to be read after a study of each chapter. I have set a series of 5 to 7 questions at the back of each chapter which are intended to promote discussion. It is my hope that those taking the trouble to read my summary will also read through Luke's gospel itself and benefit from this.
