If you look around different forms of social communication, compassion can seem to be lacking. From various embarrassing videos on social media, to possibly biased think pieces on the various news outlets, our society seems to have a lack of compassion. However, that’s not how Christians are told to behave. Terry takes us through an example of Jesus’ compassion in the book of Luke. As followers of Jesus we are called to be compassionate to others, always. We are to love one another, as God first loved us.
Terry proclaims the one Gospel through the history, research, rememberings and faith expressed in the text of the Gospel According to Luke. Jesus himself is the good news expressed by Luke. Beginning with the birth narratives unique to Luke's presentation, the good news of the Kingdom explodes into faithful view as each account, teaching, parable and event lived out and offered by Jesus, the Messiah-King, is examined the way Luke seemingly examined Jesus in his own work. Here we find a Jesus to love, a Jesus to follow, and ultimately a Jesus to worship.
