      Saint Luke, also known as Luke the Evangelist, is widely regarded as the author of both the Gospel of Luke and the Book of wrote more of the New Testament than anyone else—even the Apostle Paul.. Luke wasn’t an eyewitness to Jesus’ ministry, but he lived during the first century, and according to his own writings, he “carefully investigated everything from the beginning. The second issue is that Luke the physician is unlikely to have been the author of the gospel that now bears his name. Eyewitness to the crucifixion. Mark's Gospel tells us that the women who knew Jesus watched from afar off, with no mention of Luke, or of the disciples.

    Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne. By contrast, Mark only mentions the prayer of Jesus three times (Mark ; ; ). Both Mark and Matthew report the Transfiguration of Jesus, but only Luke tells us that Jesus went up that mountain in order to pray (). When Jesus prayed the night before his death, he urged his disciples to do the same (,46).

    Luke-Acts, Theology of. The initial verses of both the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts indicate they were written to an otherwise unknown person named Theophilus. Acts refers to the "former book" in which Luke has described the life and teachings of Jesus, an . Man must not live on bread alone: In recording Jesus’ quote from the Hebrew Scriptures, Luke cites a shorter portion of De than Matthew does. Some ancient Greek manuscripts and translations, however, complete the quote and add “but by every word of God,” making Luke’s record similar to the parallel account at Mt However, the shorter reading in Luke’s account has earlier.

Getting Started Your Story. Before we dig into the Gospel of Luke, it’s important to reflect on our own stories in relation to Jesus. All of us, no matter what our backgrounds and experiences, have a story about our knowledge of and relationship with Jesus. Even those of us from non-religious or non-Christian backgrounds have some thoughts and opinions about Jesus.

Next, only Luke has the commissioning of the seventy-two, who work the miracles of the kingdom, which are clear evidences that the Spirit is with them (). Then, to go past the Gospel of Luke and into the Book of Acts, the Eleven fill the place vacated by Judas with another disciple who was an eyewitness from the beginning (Acts ).

Jesus Unveils the Scriptures 47 and in His name repentance and forgiveness of sins will be proclaimed to all nations, beginning in Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things. 49 And behold, I am sending the promise of My Father upon you.

But remain in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”. Luke artfully introduces his gospel of the life and teachings of Jesus with a formal dedication; following in the classical style of his day.

In this long, winding sentence, Luke informs us that: 1) Others had sought to compile gospel narratives of the things believers had been taught by. 26 As the soldiers led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus.

27 A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him. 28 Jesus turned and said to them, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children.

29 For the. The Witnesses. Luke 24 opens with three women approaching Jesus’s tomb at dawn (Luke ), expecting to anoint his body with spices they prepared (Luke ). They had seen Jesus’s body laid in the tomb (Luke ), so when they find the stone rolled away, they know where to look.

They are “perplexed” to find no body. During Jesus' arrest a disciple cuts off the ear of one of the high priest's slaves.

Only in Luke does Jesus heal the slave (). On Jesus' way to the cross, a large group of women wail and lament concerning his fate. But Jesus tells them they should grieve for themselves and their children instead ().

The book of Luke provides an additional witness of many truths recorded by Matthew and Mark and also contains unique content. The Gospel of Luke can deepen students’ understanding of the teachings of Jesus Christ and help them more fully appreciate His love and compassion for all mankind, as manifested during His mortal ministry and through His infinite Atonement.

Christ’s Witnesses "Ye Shall Be Witnesses Unto Me" or "Ye shall be MY WITNESSES" (Acts ) The Great Commission according to Luke is found in Luke (see above) and also in Acts (the book of Acts was also written by Luke, the human penman).

witnesses of me: As faithful Jews, Jesus’ early disciples were already witnesses of Jehovah, and they testified that Jehovah is the only true God. (Isa ; ) Now, though, the disciples were to be witnesses of both Jehovah and Jesus.

They were to make known Jesus’ vital role in sanctifying Jehovah’s name by means of His Messianic. The Gospel of Luke retells the story of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

The companion to the Gospel account Luke wrote was Acts, which retells the work of Jesus' spirit after his ascension, and the story of the movement of people he inspired.

Luke, who allegedly wrote a gospel and the Acts of the Apostles, has more to say about the Spirit than any other biblical writer does. He portrays the Spirit as the activity and presence of God but also as an impersonal force or power (LukeLuke ), and, for example, as “the Spirit of Jesus” ().In turn, for Luke, Jesus was a man primarily of the Spirit.

The project was eventually scaled back to a single book of the Bible, the Gospel of Luke, and be financed primarily by Campus Crusade supporters Bunker and Caroline Hunt for a.

The Gospel According to Luke, also called the Gospel of Luke, or simply Luke, is the third of the four canonical Gospels. It tells of the origins, birth, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ. Luke is the longest of the four gospels and the longest book in the New Testament.

Together with Acts of the Apostles it makes up a two-volume work from the same author, called Luke–Acts. The. Anna is a pious prophetess who witnesses to Jesus as one who hopes for the redemption of Jerusalem (Luke ). The women surrounding Jesus are pious and are given place to testify to him.

Women play prominent roles in Jesus’ ministry. Luke notes several women the other gospels do not mention. Thirteen of them appear here and nowhere else. Luke 24 New International Version (NIV) Jesus Has Risen. 24 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.

2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like.

A wonderful help to use when studying the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John is found in the Bible Dictionary, after “Gospels.” The Harmony of the Gospels is a chart that tells where in each book a teaching or an incident in the life of Jesus Christ is told.

Jesus.Highlights From the Book of Luke. MATTHEW’S Gospel is understood to have been written primarily for the Jewish reader, and Mark’s Gospel, for the non-Jewish.

However, the Gospel of Luke was intended for people of all nations. Written about C.E., the book of Luke is a comprehensive account of Jesus.It was evidently before writing the book of Acts that Luke completed his Gospel.

(Ac2) Since he had accompanied Paul to Jerusalem at the end of the apostle’s third missionary journey (Ac ), he would have been in a good position to trace accurately the things pertaining to Jesus Christ in the very land where the Son of God.
