The keynote of the Gospel of Luke is God’s love. Luke was “obviously a man of culture, with an appreciation of the beautiful, and he could write well. But it is not any or all of these that accounts for the beauty of this writing. Rather it is the way the love of God shines through in parable and saying and story of Jesus. Luke’s theme is a grand one and he treats it at some length. His Gospel is the longest of the four, and when Acts is added he has written more of the New Testament than any other single writer. Clearly, a study of his writings is important for the student of the New Testament,” begins Leon Morris in his introduction to this commentary.
