In the book of Luke, he gives us the most complete look at the life, work and resurrection of Jesus. Luke was a traveling companion of the Apostle Paul. He uses eyewitnesses as sources for his writings. He stresses Jesus humanity, considering Luke was a doctor himself and compassion as well as the power of The Holy Spirit and of prayer. The key focus is to emphasize the gospel and help people like you and me understand Jesus’s critical message of salvation. Another key aspect of Luke’s gospel is the importance he gives to groups of people typically in the lower case of society, women, Gentiles, tax collectors, prostitutes, people with leprosy and others with low status. For instance, Luke repeatedly recounts Jesus’s respectful and honorable interactions with women, who in that day were much like property and often belittled, subordinate to men, and not permitted to testify in court or engage in commerce. But Jesus spoke openly and publicly to women in many accounts of his ministry. Several female disciples, including Mary Magdalene, Joanna and Susanna, accompanied and supported Jesus. He healed several women and defended their value. After His resurrection, he appeared to a group of women first. All diversities of people mattered to Jesus.  Through Luke, God teaches us how He is in charge of the world history. Besides the reconciliation through Jesus’ death, Jesus won for us The Holy Spirit who teaches us to witness for Him and follow Him, which is the prime example He set for us.
