...Gospel of Luke Introduction "The Gospel of Luke is the third of what is called the synoptic gospels of the New Testament. The synoptic gospels chronicle the life of Jesus historically, and this is the perspective of the gospels of Luke, Mark and Matthew. The common elements in all three gospels are numerous enough to make it reasonable to presume that the sources of information were common as well". The gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles are addressed to "Theophilus," presumed to be a high Roman official. 1 "There are some arguments that the gospel of Luke was written circa 75 AD because Luke used Mark", whose gospel was written in AD 65, and Luke describes the destruction...

Nevertheless, despite this, each of the New Testament Gospels focuses on the individual qualities of Jesus. In particular, by analysing Matthew, one can conclude that the author portrays Jesus primarily as a Jewish wisdom teacher, “the New Moses.” Compared to Matthew's account, the Gospel of Luke is making a different accent in consideration of the image of Jesus Christ because it emphasizes the importance of Jesus Christ for all humanity, not only for the Jews.

...Luke 7:36-50 The story documented in Luke 7:36-8:3 is arguably one of the commonest gospel stories today. Maybe the popularity of thestory could be based on the fact that the story is recorded by all the four gospels.1 However, the fact that this story depicts the son of God as one that accepts worship from even the sinful people could be another contributing factor to its widespread popularity. Even though Mathew, Mark and John also record this incident, the account of Luke is very distinctive. The first main difference with Luke’s account is that he has placed it very early in the gospel thereby detaching the story from the passion of the Christ. 2 3 Luke seems to be interested... ?An Exegesis of Luke...

The polarised debate pits academics who argue that the representation of women by Luke is solely to highlight the role of man against those who cite the Gospel as evidence of a wider prominent role attached to women. Indeed, Reid B. E. argues that the recent debate regarding the role of women in the church has revived interest in the New Testament, with many gravitating towards the perception of Luke as a friend of women (Reid, 1996, p.xiv). Conversely, the interpretation of Luke’s Gospel has often been viewed as highlighting the passive... Critically discuss the role of women in the Luke ...

Luke intended his work to read as history and not fiction.

In this passage, the reader becomes the character Jesus who is being tested by the devil.
