The gospel of Luke is an in-depth story of Jesus life, his purpose, his vision and his sacrifice; from birth to death Luke does an amazing job painting a beautiful picture of Jesus, showing his ancestry, portraying him as a human just like you and I. Luke does tell a lot of the same things as Matthew and Mark but a much more in depth description and explains Jesus identity, his journey, the religious leaders of the time, and his resurrection and crucifixion.

Luke portrays Jesus in a human like perspective, as a teacher to all. Luke shows Jesus lineage is traced back to Adam and Eve; Adam and Eve were the first humans so to trace his ancestors back to them is showing how he was born to ...view middle of the document...

Jesus was a teacher, who had love for all just as God does, even lepers, outcasts, sinners, tax collectors, gentiles, etc. Luke 19:10, “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost” (NIV, p1742). Luke’s gospel teaches you that everyone can live eternally with God if you accept God as your lord and savior. Luke’s focus is on the people who are in the most need. “"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed” (NIV, Luke 4:18, p1711). Luke spends a lot of time quoting all of Jesus parables 28 of them to be exact, this shows how much Jesus taught, his stories brought life and understanding to the way God wants us to live.

Jesus did not have everyone’s love and support, the people who led the communities, the leaders of these times often said negative things about Jesus, the Pharisees, scribes, chief priests, Sadducees often thought and spoke of Jesus as if he was a liar, the questioned his every word. The leaders would curse his name, ridicule him and try to find something wrong with what he was doing. Luke 11:53, “When Jesus went outside; the Pharisees and the teachers of the law began to oppose him fiercely and to besiege him with questions” (NIV, p1729). Just as much as these leaders had little faith in Jesus, Jesus thought of them as greedy, corrupt liars. The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus. He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of others, but God knows your hearts. What people value highly is detestable in God’s sight”(NIV, p1737). Jesus had every intention on even teaching the leaders the way of God and there need for the Savior. Luke 10:25-28, “And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?”And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live” (NIV, p1726). Not all of the leaders are presented as bad people in Luke, he does show that some leaders did want to follow the way of God; it is almost as if peer pressure existed and they fell into the trap of what the other leaders were thinking, and not necessarily what they believed themselves. In Luke 13:31-33 the leaders warn Jesus of Herrods desire to kill him, but Jesus does not allow this to affect his decisions. “At that time some Pharisees came to Jesus and said to him, “Leave this place and go...
