The Story of Jesus According to Luke

The Gospel of Luke is directed toward Greek and Roman readers. It begins with a typical Greek style introduction that included Luke's method and purpose in writing. It highlights Jesus' compassion for the common man and woman and their faith in him, and it presents Jesus as their Savior as much as he was Savior of the Jews.

Many browsers have a function that will read aloud the text of these PDFs once you have opened them. In mine, it is the "A" with a sound symbol in the address line above. It is a little clunky, but it you have difficulty reading, it will allow you to enjoy the guides.

The disciples were chosen after much prayer and became his spokesmen after his resurrection.

But even the disciples had much to learn before they were ready.  

Not everyone found Jesus' teaching lifegiving. They were too  much into the things of the world and building their own kingdoms to want to follow a Savior who asked them to leave those things to follow him.

The story does not end here. Luke continues with Jesus' Apostles taking the message of this Savior  for all men and for all time to the Roman world and beyond and how the Holy Spirit gathered men and women of every race and nationality to Jesus. That is all in the book of Acts. 

Biblical Studies: What about Luke

Some of the questions about Luke-Acts answered. 

My take after years of study. 

Greetings. My name is Don Camp. I have been a Bible teacher and pastor for over 30 years. After retirement from teaching, I published Messiah: The Story of Jesus According to Matthew and recently placed that book online here on Today and Tomorrow.  I've since added other reading guides. The series Savior: The Story of Jesus According to Luke is the latest. 

My hope is that the casual language that made them enjoyable to my students would appeal to others.
