My Paper on the Book of Luke When interviewed about the book of Luke Pastor Joe Wagner of First Baptist Church in Du Quoin had lots of wisdom to share. “The book of Luke in my eyes is one of if not the most important book in the Bible (Joe Wagner Interview).” Wagner proceeded to tell about how the book of Luke truly shows the most important events in the life and death of our savior especially concerning the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. “Picture this Jesus Christ looked like just any ordinary dude but with a sick beard give him a camo shirt and a hat and he could be a part of the Duck Dynasty family but the power of this man was surreal this man had the power to take away illnesses that no other man can heal and could defy every law of Gravity he is because he was completely pure and knew in his heart what his purpose on the earth was (Joe Wagner Interview).” After talking with Brother Joe about the events of the Bible I then realized that it was the book of Luke that was always playing on Easter day when I was a kid but instead of being scripture they used television shows.
Don’t you remember how when you were a kid growing up in the church, your parents would tell you stories of a man who had somewhat supernatural powers as if he were a comic book super hero he was resurrected from his death.

The Gospel of Luke is one of the three Synoptic Gospels along with Matthew and Mark. These three books were very important to the bible and do tie together however I believe that Luke is the most important.

    I do believe that Luke wishes to emphasize the compassion and humanity to portray Jesus, who willingly forgives the sinners, comforts the downtrodden, and heals the sick and afflicted. I view Jesus in the book of Luke as taking a personal interest in the community, one who cares about the people and their concerns. Also in the book of Luke, Jesus is a very powerful figure and a great miracle worker. In Luke, Jesus focus is on social and economic justice. His kingdom is in need of a radical change…

    Rel. 2040 November 14, 2012 “The Gospel of Luke RP” Knowledge was power back around 80-90 ce when Luke was written.

    The Gospel of Luke is the third out of the four Canonical Gospels. It carries out few important theological themes that relate to what has been discussed in class so far. From the beginning, Luke portrays Jesus as the Savior and the Messiah; in other words, the incarnation and son of God. Such theme can be related to the Christocentric approach, whose theological views are centered around Jesus, the son of God. Luke also constantly underlines the importance of the Holy Spirit.
