In our Bible Study today Pastors Rob Sauers and Nathanael Mayhew will be taking a closer look at the Gospel of Luke and his particular perspective of the life of Jesus during Holy Week. Luke was a Gentile who was used by the Holy Spirit to record these events for the benefit of other Gentiles in particular. One of the major themes in Luke's Gospel is to show that Jesus was the Savior of all people, not just Jews. He shows how Jesus reaches out to the "less" of Jewish society, as well as foreigners in love and with compassion and forgiveness. In this study they will look at some of the events of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday that are unique to the Gospel of Luke and which empahasize these themes. In addition they will look at some of the resurrection appearances of Jesus and His ascensionwhich revels the theme of Jesus being the Savior of all and our joy in praising Him for His work of salvation for us. We hope you will benefit from this deeper look at the passion history of our Lord as recorded in the Gospel of Luke.
