Luke’s unique material

Luke’s unique material

Luke’s gospel contains many special emphases. These include Jesus’ particular love for the poor and marginalised and his teaching about the dangers of wealth. These emphases particularly stand out within the material that only occurs in Luke and is absent from Matthew, Mark and John. During this series (which will continue into July) we will study a number of these stories as we seek to apply the radical challenge of the third gospel to our daily lives and our life as a church.
