Abstract:

"The Gospel of Luke narrates the life of Jesus from the nativity stories, to Jesus' baptism and temptation, ministry in Galilee, journey to and teaching in Jerusalem, and finally his death and resurrection. In his engaging guide to Luke's account, Richard Vinson accompanies readers on their own compelling journey-a journey through the life of Christ as seen through the lenses of critical scholarship and contemporary culture. As a result, we cannot turn away from Luke's primary messages: the good news of the Kingdom of God and Jesus' emphatic teachings on wealth and poverty, repentance and forgiveness, and the role of women in Jesus' ministry...the primary goal of the Smyth & Helwys Bible Commentary series is to make available serious, credible biblical scholarship in an accessible and less intimidating format. A visual generation of believers deserves a commentary series that contains not only the all-important textual commentary on Scripture, but images, photographs, maps, works of fine art, and drawings that bring the text to life. Each volume of the Smyth & Helwys Bible Commentary series features a CD-ROM, which expands the uses and capabilities of the Commentary even more" -- From publisher description.
