Luke's carefully researched and "orderly account" of the life of Christ is one of the finest pieces of historical writing in all of ancient literature. Yet it also accomplishes its divinely appointedand more personalpurpose: that people of every century "may know the truth."
"Those who study Luke cannot stay the same," says commentator R. Kent Hughes. "He took great pains to present the gospel with maximum power under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The result is a compelling story." Especially when it is read and studied in sequence, as Hughes has done in these two volumes.
Luke's breadthwith entire sections that are recorded nowhere else in the New Testamentand its celebratory tone set it apart from the other Gospels. Luke resounds with praise to God from beginning to end. Taking readers from just prior to Jesus' birth to His ascension into heaven, this spirited report communicates the joy and the glory of the earthly life and ministry of Jesus Christ. And Pastor Hughes's insightful commentary, which unveils both Luke's approach and purpose in recording the life of Christ, and the implications of that life, adds compelling perspective to help you communicate God's Word more effectively.
Luke the historianwith his painstaking reportingwill make you certain about the truth of not only his Gospel, but the gospel. Luke the theologianwith his careful recounting of Christ's mercy and compassionwill touch you with God's love and grace. And Luke the physicianwith his heart for people, especially the less privilegedwill help you to love others more deeply. This may well be the only commentary you'll ever need to teach and preach the power, the celebration, the glorious message of Luke's beloved Gospel. Part of the Preaching the Word series.
