This week we will finish the end of the Gospel of Mark and move on through the majority of the third Gospel, Luke.
The Gospel of Luke is the first part of a two-part book written by the same author. The first part is an account of Jesus' life; the second part, the book of Acts, is an account of the early life of the church. The author Luke was a physician who was a traveling companion of Paul on some of his missionary journeys. He addresses the books of Luke and Acts to Theophilus, probably a Gentile that was either a new believer or someone who wanted to know more about Jesus. Luke elaborates on a lot of the information from Matthew and Mark, including more parables and more stories about Jesus' interactions with people which show his interest in the non-Jewish world and the poor.
I pray this insight will deepen and expand your readings this week. Here is the schedule:
04, Sunday: Mark 13-16
05, Monday: Luke 1-4
06, Tuesday: Luke 5-8
07, Wednesday: Luke 9-12
08, Thursday: Luke 13-16
09, Friday: Luke 17-20
10, Saturday: Luke 21-24
May God add His richest blessings to the reading, the hearing and most importantly, the living out of His Holy Word. Amen.
