Today we continue looking at the over view of the Books of the Bible
LUKE – Part 1
Luke, a gentile physician, builds his gospel story around a historical, orderly presentation of Jesus’ life. Luke’s is the longest and most detailed of the four Gospels, presenting Jesus Christ as the Perfect Man who came to seek and save sinful men. Growing belief and growing opposition develop side by side. Those who believe His claims are challenged to count the cost of discipleship; those who oppose Him will not be satisfied until the Son of Man hangs on the cross. But the Resurrection ensures that His ministry of seeking and saving the lost will continue in the person of His disciples once they have been equipped with His power.
