Luke-Acts

    On Earth As It Is In Heaven

    The phrase is taken from the prayer that Jesus taught his disciples to pray and it encapsulates the theme of this singular work broken up into two volumes. The Third evangelist sought to compile all the information made available including other gospels and eyewitness testimony in order to present an account of Jesus. In this account, we identify buzz concepts like repentance, compassion and community. In this account we identify exalted groups like sinners, outcasts and the poor. In this account, we see the fulfillment of God?s kingdom taking root on earth. As we explore the Gospel of Luke and the follow-up volume of Acts, we are invited to hear the story of Jesus and the invasion of God's Kingdom on earth.
