about

Luke's purpose is to present Jesus as the Christ and his life, death and resurrection as Good News. In Luke’s introduction of the Good News starts the infancy narrative, then the ministry of John and Jesus in adulthood. We are then introduced to Jesus’ ministry in Galilee which is Good News to the Poor. Luke describes the wisdom Jesus imparts to his disciples. Jesus teaches that discipleship is a journey with no resting place on earth and secondly that there is no more urgent binding obligation than to follow Jesus. Jesus also teaches his disciples how to manage material things, how to treat other people and how to serve God. Luke also gives us some parables that reveal what Jesus has been teaching especially how disciples should deal with riches. In the last section we come to Luke’s presentation of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Luke presents the death and resurrection in the light of Jesus role as prophet. Then he continues his presentation of the death and resurrection in the light of the Passover and the New Covenant. Then Luke reveals to us the supreme mystery of the death and resurrection of Jesus through three experiences on the part of the disciples; the discovery of the empty tomb, the appearance of Jesus to two disciples on the road to Emmaus and the appearance of Jesus to the community in Jerusalem.
