Bible Study

The Gospel According to Luke …

 


 

This study has 12 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 11 lessons. The Study Set includes a Study Guide by Little Rock Scripture Study Staff and the New Collegeville Bible Commentary, The Gospel According to Luke, by Michael F. Patella (Liturgical Press).

Luke tells the story of Jesus of Nazareth as a mighty prophet and Savior of the world in fulfillment of Old Testament expectations. Luke also emphasizes Jesus as a person dedicated to prayer. He begins with Jesus' virginal conception and birth, and follows Jesus through his public ministry to his passion, death, resurrection, and ascension into heaven—all under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Luke, along with Matthew and Mark, is one of the synoptic gospels.

 The year 2019 is the liturgical cycle ‘C’ and the church will be using The Gospel According to Luke.  This is the perfect time for this scripture study.  

Our class will begin on Tuesday evening, February 12, 2019, at 7:30 pm and repeated on Thursday morning February 14, 2019, at 9:30 am both in the parish hall.

Cost for the 12 weeks Bible Study will be $23.00 per person which covers the cost of your study set, DVD video for each session and miscellaneous costs. Make the check out to Corpus Christi Catholic Church.

St. Luke is one of the most extensive writers of the New Testament. His Gospel is considerably longer than St. Matthew's, his two books are about as long as St. Paul's fourteen Epistles: and Acts exceeds in length the Seven Catholic Epistles and the Apocalypse. The style of the Gospel is superior to any New Testament writing except Hebrews. Renan says (Les Evangiles, xiii) that it is the most literary of the Gospels. St. Luke is a painter in words. "The author of the Third Gospel and of the Acts is the most versatile of all New Testament writers. His great command of Greek is shown by the richness of his vocabulary and the freedom of his constructions.
