Luke’s gospel is everything that Mark wasn’t. It’s long, it’s detailed, it’s precise.
Volume one of Luke’s writings (the book of Acts is volume two) introduces us to Jesus. It upends the religious structures of the day. It’s the religious leaders that are marginalized and the marginalized that are lifted up. It sounds like what would happen if someone was serious about that “God exalts the humble” sort of stuff.
Luke is a consummate historian. His detail and precision in the life of Jesus gives us more historical anchor points than any other gospel writer. Come listen as Richie G, Howard Wingo, and Matthew Hiatt discuss this beautiful gospel.
