Luke the Evangelist wrote his gospel and the Acts of the Apostles, which account for nearly one quarter of the New Testament. In his gospel, Luke continually stresses God's blessings for the poor and the subtle dangers of wealth. Likewise, he underscores that acceptance of the gospel means rejecting the worldly standards of success. "He portrays with particular tenderness the striking difference between the proud Pharisee and the humble tax collector at prayer," writes Henry Wansbrough. And he "stresses above all that we are all sinners in need of repentance on our part, and forgiveness on God's." This Daily Bible Commentary takes a thoughtful journey through Luke's gospel that will lead the reader closer to the merciful Savior Luke depicts. The Daily Bible CommentaryA mere reading of the Bible fails to fulfill its ultimate purpose. The Bible's message is meant to transform. The Daily Bible Commentary series distills the best of current scholarship into the straightforward language of a devotional. It skillfully opens each New Testament book and helps readers respond to the eternal truths within. General editors Richard A. Burridge, Dom Henry Wansbrough, and David Winter, together with other renowned scholars from an array of Christian traditions, provide helpful introduction, accessible explanation, and fresh meditations on individual passages. Balancing profound reflection with penetrating insight, the two-page daily readings engage the mind while never failing to touch the heart.
