Module Description

While the Gospel of Luke was written in a time and a place very different from our own, this remarkable telling of the Christ event still speaks in a most dramatic way to those seeking to understand the person of Jesus. In this module we will take a literary theological approach to reading the gospel in order to appreciate the how the evangelist interpreted Jesus for his readers. We will come to see how this story which is full of hope and joy still challenges us to become authentic disciples of the risen Christ.
