On-campus: The Gospel of Luke is an amazing story of Jesus with so many famous episodes like the “Nazareth Manifesto,” the parable of the prodigal son, the story of Zacchaeus, and the account of the two travellers on the road to Emmaus. Luke’s Gospel highlights the meaning of salvation, the compassion of Jesus for women, the poor, and outcasts, the purpose and plan of God, and clarifies the nature of discipleship. Students can expect to learn about God, Jesus, themselves, and their own part in the mission of God by taking this subject.
