Overview

Luke's portrait of Jesus shows Him coming into Galilee proclaiming "good news to the poor, freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind." More than any other Gospel the Gospel of Luke shows Jesus' concern for the downtrodden and oppressed, those marginalized by society, including women and children. It also displays his concern for those outside the house of Israel. Luke's Gospel seems "tailor-made" for the multicultural world we live in, filled with misunderstandings and sometimes bitter ethnic divisions. His story explains how men and women of different ethnic origins can be transformed into a unified community and share together in the blessings of salvation. In this stimulating, pastorally oriented commentary, readers will find an introduction with background material concerning authorship, date and purpose, as well as a summary of important theological themes. A passage-by-passage exposition follows that focuses on understanding what Luke had to say to his original readers in order to see its relevance for the church today.
