The Gospel Luke


 This study we will dive into the Gospel of Luke 

 Summary of the Gospel of Luke

This summary of the Gospel of Luke provides information about the title, author(s), date of writing, chronology, theme, theology, outline, a brief overview, and the chapters of the Gospel of Luke

Luke was probably a Gentile by birth, well educated in Greek culture, a physician by profession, a companion of Paul at various times from his second missionary journey to his final imprisonment in Rome, and a loyal friend who remained with the apostle after others had deserted him

Sundays @ 9am in the Chapel

Before Amen

By Max Lucado

I doze off when I pray. My thoughts zig, then zag, then zig again. Distractions swarm like gnats on a summer night. If attention deficit disorder applies to prayer, I am afflicted. When I pray, I think of a thousand things I need to do.

I forget the one thing I set out to do: pray.
