Women’s Bible Study

Gospel of Luke

Thursdays at 10 AM via Zoom

The Women’s Bible Study is currently studying the Gospel of Luke on Thursdays via Zoom at 10 am. St. Luke the Apostle and Evangelist was the travel companion of the apostle Paul on his secnod and third great missionary journeys throughout the Mediterranean world. He was, by background, a Gentile born in the city of Antioch, and a medical doctor by profession. He is the author of two books in the New Testament: the Gospel that bears his name, and the Acts of the Apostles. Luke’s Gospel places the story of the Lord Jesus in the context of Roman history and is an attempt to “provide an orderly account” of His life and ministry. His Gospel is marked by his special concern for the poor, that the Good News about Jesus Christ is for all peoples, both Jews and Gentiles alike. Luke also emphasizes the activity of the Holy Spirit, who is active both in the life of Christ and in the earliest Christian communities beginning with the day of Pentecost. Luke was martyred at the age of 84 near Thebes, Greece.

This class is taught by Eve Tibbs and all are welcome!

“I ask that your minds may be opened to see his light, so that you will know what is the hope to which he has called you, how rich are the wonderful blessings he promises his people, and how very great is his power at work in us who believe.”
