CBS I.8 Luke 9:51-19:27

Recorded on November 29th 2011.

This section of Luke’s Gospel begins when Jesus “resolutely determined to journey to Jerusalem.” It is a literal turning-point in the Gospel where Jesus sets his face towards the place where his destiny will be fulfilled. Think of the hymn, “Jerusalem My Destiny”. We see again some of Luke’s dominant themes,  prayer, right use of wealth, forgiveness, reconciliation, and how these are often expressed in well-crafted stories, such as:

  • The Parable of the Good Samaritan – Luke 10:29-37
  • The Parable of the Rich Fool – Luke 12:16-21
  • The Parable of the Great Feast – Luke 124:15-24
  • The Parable of the Lost Sheep, the Lost Coin and the Lost Son – Luke 15:1-32
  • The Parable of the Dishonest Steward – Luke 16:1-8
  • The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus – Luke 16:19-31
  • The Story of Zaccheus the Tax Collector – Luke 19:1-10
  • We also looked at Luke’s version of the Lord’s Prayer (11:1-4) and compared it to the version in Matthew 6:9-15 which we know better.
