Did you ever try to envision what things would be like in Christianity if we didn't have Luke's gospel? Can we imagine Christmas without shepherds or a baby in a manger? Liturgy without the Magnificat? A Church year without Ascension or Pentecost? Special attention will be given to Luke's theme of universality and his presentation of Jesus' proclamation of a liberation which is not limited by ethnic, national, economic or gender concerns. Luke will be
experienced as a pastor whose gospel is a blueprint for contemporary Christians.
This course will be taught in Jerusalem.
