Luke’s Gospel, along with Matthew and Mark, presents a common story and relates substantially the same incidents of the life of Christ. Yet Luke is different, because it provides us with insights into the life and ministry of Jesus which complement and complete the picture given by the other writers. If Luke’s contribution were absent, the portrait would be incomplete. Without Luke, we would have no record of the Prodigal Son, the Good Samaritan, the Rich Man and Lazarus, and the Unjust Judge. Only Luke gives us details about the birth of Jesus and John the Baptist. This commentary tells the story in the book of Luke and its unique window into Jesus’ ministry.
