Gospels are formed in three main stages. The first stage of the gospel development is the life and teachings of Jesus as he travelled through the country speaking, teaching, performing miracles and healing, which happened in the late 20’s AD. The second stage is about the post-resurrectional teachings by the apostles, and the Church's practices that grew out of preaching, such as the Eucharist. During these two stages of gospel formation, the gospels were orally transmitted through preaching. Stage three of the formation started when the disciples began to realise that Jesus may not come back in their lifetime, so they needed to preserve the stories, so the third stage is the actual writing and then editing of the gospels. At this point the transmission of the Gospel was through reading as well. Luke wrote this part with Gentile Christians as his audience- the reason for…

    Though the Gospel of Luke does not directly mention the author, many scholars have a strong clue as to who it may be. The individual who wrote Luke, also wrote the book of Acts. The Gospel of Luke includes more than thirty years—the lifetime of Jesus on earth—from about 6 BC to about AD 30. Though it is uncertain exactly when the story was written, many guess in the AD 50s or 60s, placing it before Paul’s execution. With that being said, this would explain why Acts end without telling the…

    The Bible has four gospels but, only two of them contain the nativity story. The two gospels that have the nativity story are the Gospel of Matthew and the Gospel of Luke. Both are similar on a literary level which can be explained by the synoptic problem. The Gospel of Mark and the source “Q” were the basis of these two gospels. Matthew and Luke shared sources but, they had their individual sources too. The genealogy, the nativity, and the childhood of Jesus played significant roles within the…

    compilation of the readings from week twelve (Perkins and Tyson) and thirteen (Perkins). Perkins’ chapter on the Gospel of Luke gave a detailed summation to several aspects of the good news written by the second-hand author.

    Jesus said, “The kingdom of the Father is like a woman. She took a little bit of yeast. She hid it in dough and made it into huge loaves of bread.” Question: A saying of Jesus similar to this one appears in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, but in two different narrative settings. Assuming that this saying originated in the life of Jesus, how might someone explain its journey from Jesus himself to the Gospels of Thomas, Matthew, and Luke, with reference to oral tradition, "Q," and the Two-Source…

    There are many stories from the gospel of Luke that surprised me. One of the stories that stood out to me most was the story of Joseph and Mary. It is crazy to think how much trust Mary had for God’s plan. She was willing to do what he wanted her to do with little hesitation. One reason it stood out to me was because it should how faithful someone can be even at a young age. Often times, I find myself justifying my poor decisions on my age, such as not attending church regularly. Yet, Mary was…

    MRS 325: The relationship between the Gospel of Luke and Acts The Gospel According to Luke as well as the Acts of the Apostles collectively make up 27 percent of the information of the whole New Testament. These two works were authored by Luke, a Gentile believer (Colossians 4:10-14). Seeing that he just authored these two books, which his writings constitute over one fourth of the New Testament writings (making Luke the greatest possible author), the study of the content and message is quite…
