Week One (5/3): Who Was Luke?
We already mentioned that Luke was a Gentile, which makes him unique in a lot of ways from all of the other writers of the Bible. What else can we discover about Luke? Like Matthew and Mark, does Luke's backstory tell us more about why Christ chose him to recount His life and ministry? What does this choice mean to us today?
Week Two (5/10) The Story of Mary
Matthew spent a good deal detailing Joseph, the surrogate father of Jesus. Luke, meanwhile, focuses on the mother of Jesus. In fact, we get most of what we know about Mary from Luke. She has become an important and central figure in many Christian's lives. Find out what Luke recorded about it, knowing that his words were inspired and directed by the voice of God.
Week Three (5/17): Jesus, the Philosopher?
There are a lot of important truths and directives that we find in Luke that aren't given in quite the same way in other gospels. The words of Christ come through in a more detailed manner than Luke and a more inward perspective than Matthew. What are these sayings and what do they mean to us? We examine them to find out.
Week Four (5/24): 5 Things We Learned From Luke
We unpack the entire series in a compact video. What are the 5 major takeaways we get from this study? We'll have them all here with our unique spin and added insights just like last time.
