Book Overview - Luke

by L.M. Grant

The unique spotless manhood of the person of the Lord Jesus is the predominant theme in the Gospel of Luke, written by the only Gentile writer of Scripture, who also wrote the book of Acts. Grace is therefore an outstanding subject -- the grace that brought the great Creator down to partake of flesh and blood in genuine relationship with mankind, to enter into and understand by experience what it means to "learn obedience by the things which He suffered" (Hebrews 5:8). The facts as to His birth by the virgin Mary are here beautifully told; and His pure manhood is seen too in His many prayers of lowly dependence. The reality of His bodily resurrection also is emphasized more fully than in any other Gospel. His communion with the Father is sweetly evidenced, and His delight in communion with His disciples. Here is the peace offering aspect of His sacrifice, and the peace of harmonious well-being is apparent. Consistent with this, Luke does not record the Lord's cry of abandonment from the cross, but does record His last words, "Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit" (ch.23:46).
