The Synoptic Gospels (English)
SEMESTER 2 2021
Tuesday Daytime Unit
Luke was a doctor, a theologian, a careful historian and a follower of Jesus – the evangelist who recorded Jesus’ momentous words to Zacchaeus, “Today salvation has come to this house.” This unit studies the Gospel of Luke in its context as one of the three Synoptic Gospels, considering the question of what kind of writing the Gospels actually are.
We begin by considering how the Synoptic Gospels fit together. We will look at Luke as a whole, but will also in a more detailed way work through understanding selected chapters of Luke. And as we do that, we will be considering the big theological emphases of Luke’s Gospel and how they apply to and inform Christian belief, life and ministry: topics like Jesus’ role as Saviour, humanity and wealth, the Holy Spirit’s work, prayer, Israel's Law and the temple, the future, and people on the margins of society.
