Luke the physician writes primarily for Gentiles and for their sake, he makes many changes in the Gospel tradition. Students will review the major outlines of Luke’s Gospel, including his unique usage of geographical references to reflect Jesus ‘on the way’ – as Christians became known as ‘people of the way’, that is, the way of Jesus Christ. This course covers the main points of Lucan theology as well as his literary characteristics and style. This will apply also to volume two of his Gospel, namely, the Acts of the Apostles, his sequel to the Gospel to the nations.
