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.
Jesus uses the parable of the minas in Luke 19:11-27 to teach about preparation for the coming of the Kingdom of God. Many people thought that the Kingdom would come immediately, but Jesus explained that there was much work to be done before that time. (Message presented by Greg Newell.)
