Luke the physician was fascinated by people--rich and poor, Jews and Gentiles, men and women, rulers and slaves. In his Gospel he delights to portray Jesus as the Saviour not of an elite group but of anyone, in condition, who turns to him. Jesus is indeed the Saviour of the world. Luke knew exactly what he was doing when he wrote his Gospel. He tells us his goal in the opening verses: to set forth an orderly and accurate account of what had been accomplished by the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. In this up-to-date exposition on The Message of Luke, Michael Wilcock gives special attention to these opening words. Then, as he exa- mines the individual deeds and sayings of Jesus, he shows how the structure of Luke's narrative brings out their meaning. Michael Wilcock is former director of pastoral studies at Trinity College, Bristol, and is currently vicar of St. Nicholas' Church, Durham.
