St. Luke Assessment.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Luke Assessment St Luke lived in 75A.D. Luke was a Greek and worked as a doctor. We are told this in Colossians 4:14. Luke was a gentile and was writing to Theophilus, as it says 'Dear Theophilus' in Luke 1:1. Luke wrote his gospel for everyone: Jews and also non-Jews. He wrote this gospel to inform people about Jesus, and what he preaches. Luke got a lot of his information for his gospel from many different sources, including the gospels of Matthew, Mark and John, as Lk:3.1-20 is made up from different sections of these three gospels. In his gospel, St Luke reveals many times that Jesus is the messiah. In Luke's gospel there are many accounts of miracles.

Conclusion

When the son returned his father threw a huge party for him. This allegory teaches us that if you aren't prepared to take risks you will find your life very boring. This also teaches us that you should be able to forgive someone and not hold grudges against him or her when they are sorry. For a lot of people today this would be very difficult, as people are often very self-centred without realizing, and often hold grudges over very petty things. When Jesus was up on the crucifix in Lk:23.40-43, and everyone is laughing at him, one of the criminals who was to the side of him said to Jesus 'Remember me Jesus when you come as King!' and Jesus tells the man that he will be in Paradise with him when he dies.
