The Gospel of St. Luke

  May 4 - 25, 2015

This course is an introduction to the Gospel of Luke.  Week One covers introductory topics such as authorship, dating, sources, literary qualities, and devotes much space to introducing Luke’s distinctive theology.  Luke emphasizes Jesus reaching out to the outcasts of society and shows Jesus at prayer at key moments.  Week Two covers the Gospel until the end of Jesus’ ministry in Galilee, including the Infancy Narrative, Twelve Apostles, Sermon on the Plain, and parables.  Week Three will treat Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem (beginning in 9:51), especially the distinctive teaching of Jesus that Luke gives us in this section of his Gospel e.g. the Seventy-Two, Good Samaritan, Parables of God’s Mercy in Luke 15, and other parables.  Participants who complete this seminar should be able to identify and explain Luke’s distinctive theology by making reference to particular passages of the Gospel.
