Pre-requisites: Basic or Advanced New Testament Greek or Classical Greek

Aims/Description: Luke's Gospel is famous for its nativity story and memorable parables. It is well - loved for its concern for the poor and marginalised and a very human portrayal of Jesus. But what is Luke's gospel story apart from the prodigal son? How does he select and shape his traditions? This unit will offer a deeper exploration of the Gospel of Luke, its historical setting and literary composition but also its theology. Regular glances at other (non)canonical gospels and Acts will further help us to understand the profile of this gospel-writer.
