Chapter 19 - Snapshots of Jesus as seen through the Gospels; Gospel of Luke: Mark Lanier

Mark continued with Snapshots of Jesus transitioning to the Gospel of Luke. Mark explained Luke’s background, the author of Luke and Acts. Luke uses the pronoun “they” when the events were told to him, and “he” when he was not an eyewitness. Luke puts the sources by name into his accountings, showing his attention to detail. Luke, the physician and historian traveled with Paul during a voyage. For some New Testament passages, both writers appeared to share the same notes.

Some Luke takeaways:

  1. God does speak to us.
  2. God gives us choices.
  3. We are to listen and learn.

Listen to Mark explain the writer Luke and his qualifications to write the Gospel.
