Here are 4 good reasons to study the Gospel written by Luke. I am grateful to Chuck Swindoll, the famous preacher, for the following summary of the Book of Luke, as found in “The LIVING INSIGHTS” study Bible. And to his summary, I say, “Amen”.
- It provides a trustworthy account of the life of Jesus.
- It provides a realistic portrait of Jesus’ humanity. He totally understands us.
- It provides a comforting record of mercy and compassion for the unloved and unaccepted. He accepts us completely and loves us tenderly.
- It provides an orderly and complete account of Jesus’ earthly mission to save the lost that culminates in His death, resurrection and ascension.
“Thank God for the gospel of Luke. In this account of the life of Jesus we find SECURITY, IDENTITY, ACCEPTANCE, and FORGIVENESS. Luke offers us an intimate look at a Savior we can approach with confidence, knowing that He will embrace us with love and shower us with grace.”
