Unit Code: NT008-612
Pre or Co-requisites: No
In our New Testament we have four Gospels. In some respects they are very similar, yet in other ways they are quite different. How do we explain these differences, and how do we understand the Gospels as both pieces of literature and parts of Scripture?
This subject looks at these issues with a particular focus on Luke’s Gospel. You will be introduced to Luke’s major themes, such as Jesus’ concern for the poor and marginalised in society, and the very confronting things that he has to say about wealth and possessions. You will also study in depth several chapters of Luke – this should help immensely with Bible study and sermon preparation. Finally, we will look at Jesus as a figure of history. Who did Jesus really think he was, and what was he trying to achieve? These are important questions as we dialogue with others both inside and outside the church.
