Discover Jesus – Luke’s Gospel

We read the Bible to gain insights into the love of God for each of us. In this program, Fr. Mike explores the Gospel of Luke and how this writer tells the story of Jesus , especially for the Gentiles. Fr. Mike answers the questions Who, What, When, How, Where, and Why as these pertain to the Gospel of Luke. It may be that Luke didn’t even know Jesus. But he was a dedicated follower of Paul and so learned all that Jesus taught while on earth. He wrote it some time after the Temple was destroyed in 70 A.D. Most likely Luke wrote his story in present day Turkey or Syria. Mainly he wrote down the stories that were passed on through word of mouth. Some say that Luke may even have spoken to Mary about the life of Jesus. He then goes on to explain the portrait of Jesus as presented by Luke – this man whom the disciples loved and followed and wanted everyone to do the same.
