How to read the Gospels - Luke 19:1-27
Published October 30, 2011 at 11:31 AM
If Jesus is the ultimate revelation of God, then the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are a crucial and logical starting point for our first readings in the bible. The gospels contain both the story of Jesus' life and his teachings. It turns out the Jesus of the gospels is much more startling than the Jesus of American imagination. We illustrate two practical tools for reading the gospels and then apply them to the section of Luke's gospel that gives us both an example of narrative (Jesus exeperience with Zaccheus) and example of Jesus' teaching (The parable of the Minas).
