The book called Luke in the Bible, was written by a Gentile believer named Luke, who was a close associate of the Apostle Paul. He set out to carefully investigate the truth concerning Jesus Christ, using the eyewitness accounts of those who were with and knew Jesus and His ministry. His intent in writing this Gospel was so that his readers would know the truth regarding Jesus and what they have been taught concerning Him. It is our hope in studying this Gospel, that we too would better understand the truth concerning Jesus, so that we may better know Him and make Him known to others.
We have been seeing how Jesus has made His claim as the promised Messiah of the Jews, and how the religious leaders are examining His messianic claim. Today and next Sunday, we will look at the basis of these religious leaders examination of Jesus, and how Jesus addresses their misconceptions and non-biblical views.
