The Gospel of Luke

The Gospel of Luke is the first of a two-volume work of Luke/Acts. It opens with Luke's purpose for the book, "to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, that you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught." A detailed account of Jesus' birth, life, death, resurrection and ascension are found within its pages as Luke lays out the fulfilment of the Davidic covenant in the person and work of Jesus. We learn of some of Jesus' most famous parables such as the good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son. Written with an eye to the Gentiles, Luke points to the good news of Christ as a means of redemption not just for the Jews but for the whole world.
