Description

Luke's Gospel contrasts with the other Gospels - the energy of Mark, the mystical poetry of John, the Jewish focus of Matthew.

Writing with the historian's eye for narrative detail, he stresses how acceptance of Jesus' message means a complete reversal of worldly standards of success and how we need to share God's passion for the poor and excluded.

Throughout his Gospel he also drops hints to remind his readers how the message of salvation will spread beyond the people of Israel, as he shows in his second volume, the Acts of the Apostles.

About the series:

The People's Bible Commentary covers the whole Bible with an approach that presents scholarly insights in straightforward terms, aiming to instruct the head but also to warm the heart, and pointing to how the truths received can be applied personally. It is a valuable resource for all who regularly preach scripture, for those wanting to venture deeper into personal Bible reading, and for study group leaders.
