NT319 Book Study: The Gospel of Luke in Its Gentile Context

  • Instructor: Craig Evans
  • Video hours: 10

Dr. Craig Evans examines how Luke transformed the Jesus story into something that Gentiles in his time could appreciate. Luke wanted his readers to know that his account was based on early sources—credible eyewitness testimony that he himself had accessed for the composition of this Gospel. Remember, this was a Jewish story, one about Jesus the Jew, fulfiller of the Jewish Scriptures, and was part of the history of the people of Israel. So, what relevance did it have for Gentiles? Luke wanted the Gentiles to know that this Jewish Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, was their Savior too. And that is still true today—He’s our savior also. Luke’s other emphases—election, the unity of the church, proper use of wealth, and what constitutes true righteousness—remain valid for the church today as well.

Contents:

  • Introduction to the Gospel of Luke
  • The Ministry in Galilee
  • The Journey to Jerusalem
  • The Ministry in Jerusalem
  • The Passion and Resurrection of Jesus
