The Gospel of Luke, in common with the other Gospels, tells us about the Lord Jesus Christ. Luke records the birth of Jesus, the experiences of the shepherds, the unique event of Jesus at the temple, the parables, the cleansing of the ten lepers, and more. Then, at the end of the Gospel, we read the tender accounts of the women anointing the body of their Master, the journey on the road to Emmaus, and the beginnings of the church. Luke’s account employs drama, illustrations, and gripping narrative, and Bryan William’s study of it exposes Luke’s message for today’s church.
