The Gospel of Luke: Audio Course & Free Study Guide
Date: August 2008
Duration: 5 hours 11 minutes
From the past president of the Catholic Biblical Association of America, an unforgettable audio course that brings the Gospel of Luke to life.
With its themes of Jesus’ all-inclusive compassion, healing, and forgiveness, Luke’s Gospel has always captivated Christians. Only the Gospel of Luke contains the parables of the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son, the stories of Mary and Elizabeth in the infancy narratives, and the resurrection appearance to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus.
These 12 expertly delivered lectures from Sr. Barbara Reid will bring you to the heart of Luke’s Gospel. You will begin by exploring the historical setting of Luke’s life and writing, coming to understand Jesus’ healing mission as He mends broken bodies as signs of the in-breaking of the reign of God. Next, you’ll explore Jesus’ ministry of forgiveness, as exemplified in the story of a paralyzed man and in His own words of pardon from the cross.
After exploring the parables retold in Luke, you’ll investigate Jesus’ inclusive mission and examine the ways Luke features female disciples. You’ll also look at Luke’s themes of fulfillment of Scripture and the Empowering Spirit that Jesus bestows on His followers.
Join Sr. Reid in discovering the powerful words of the Gospel of Luke today.
