The Gospel of Luke  


In preparation for Year C, Dr. DeVivo will present on the distinguishing features of Luke’s gospel, beginning with authorship and the community who first received the gospel. We will also examine unique pericopes, patterns of redactional activity in comparison to the other synoptics, and overarching themes of this presentation of Jesus.

Dr. DeVivo will present on what distinguishes Luke from the other gospels, including its message of Jesus’ radical inclusion of all, forgiveness, and the gift of enjoying this life with God here and now.
