The Gospel of Luke - Series Overview
During the season of Epiphany through Lent and Easter, we will be looking at the person and work of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. We hope to work our way through Luke’s Gospel to set our eyes on Jesus. In Luke 1:1-4, Luke states his purpose for writing his Gospel: “Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us, just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word have delivered them to us, it seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, that you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught.”
We see in these first four verses that Luke’s purpose was to assure Theophilus (most likely a governing official whose name means “friend of God”) of the things he had been taught concerning Jesus. Luke also notes in these opening verses that he has compiled an orderly account from eyewitnesses and ministers of the word. For us, we too can read Luke as a way to be sure of who Jesus is and what he has done.
While we won’t address every part of the book, we will work our way through Luke’s Gospel highlighting key moments and details of Jesus story. Our hope to grow deeper in our understanding and assurance of who Jesus is as we meditate his life, ministry, death, and resurrection through the Gospel of Luke.
