In clearly described themes, this commentary on the book of Luke takes readers on a journey of discovery, finding Jesus Christ, not only the light for Israel, but for people of all nations. As the only Gentile writer found in the New Testament Scriptures, Luke provides a view of Jesus as the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy: aArise! Shine! Your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has dawned. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawna (Isaiah 60:1, 3, GWT). As one of the New Testament volumes in Practical Christianity Foundation's Easy-to-Read Commentary series, Luke: Jesus Christ, Savior for the Nations engages readers in an intelligent yet understandable study of God's Word. It is written in a style that makes God's Word come to life in a personal, meaningful way. The study is divided into sections, between six and eight verses, with each section concluding with a aNotes/Applicationsa passage, which draws practical insight from the related verses that can be applied to the reader's Christian walk. The intent is that the reader will complete one section per day, gain a greater understanding of the verses, and be challenged daily toward a deeper commitment to the Lord. Also included at certain points within the text are aDig Deepera boxes to assist readers who desire to invest additional time to study topics that relate to the designated section. This study impacts the lives of all believers, regardless of age, ethnicity, or education.Jesus Christ, Savior for the Nations Practical Christianity Foundation. 3. 4. Stein, Luke, 376.
