presents passages from the Gospel according to Luke. The selections
and commentary are not meant to be a complete representation of
Jesus' teachings. Instead, this site highlights important sections
that will hopefully allow us to lead more compassionate, charitable,
and forgiving lives in the spirit of his words.
According to Luke followed the Life of Jesus from the very beginning.
Even before he was born, the significance of his life, and death,
was undeniable even in the events which preceded his own birth.
Luke emphasized this point by including the details of Jesus'
birth. Luke also focused on the importance of love, peace and
forgiveness. Understanding that Jesus was a gift from God, and
that this gift included a message of good will toward all men,
is an integral part in focusing on this portion of the New Testament.
the works and teachings of Jesus is much the same as traveling
a path through the woods. What one sees or hears, another may
miss. The journey is almost never the same. How the path is is
traveled is as important as reaching the final destination. Some
seek happiness, some seek comfort, and some seek enlightenment;
but whatever is pursued can be found along the path as well as
at its conclusion. All of these things - happiness, comfort, enlightenment
- are not simply destinations, they are paths in themselves. May
your travels on these paths be blessed.
