LUKE'S "SOCIAL CONCERN" I. Must be set in the context of his broader theme: "Salvation is for every one." This theme is powerfully announced in Jesus' self declaration in Lk. 4:16-20 (Aland, p. 31) where Luke's Jesus read the WHOLE text of Is. 61 (unlike Mt & Mk). Note also: Lk. 3:16 (Aland, 13) "All flesh ..." II. Social Outcasts : Luke intends his reader to understand that no person stands outside the parameters of Jesus message and mission. He persistently gives positive (faith-filled) descriptions of people that polite society ignored, or looked down upon: The Lost Sheep (Lk. 15:3-7; Aland, 161) The "Good" Samaritan (Lk. 10:29-37; Aland, 170) Pharisee & Publican (Lk. 18:9-14; Aland, 205) Zacchaeus (Lk. 19:1-10; Aland, 228) Thief on the Cross (Lk. 23:3943; Aland, 319-20) Lepers (parallel w/ Mark) III. Jesus & Women : Lk offers us 13 women, as positive examples of faith which occur no where else in the NT. Women, in this cultural context, could be listed among the "outcasts" (above): Mary in the Annunciation (Lk. 1:26-38; Aland, 3) Mary in the Magnificat (Lk. 139-56; Aland, 3) Elizabeth & Zechariah (Lk. 1:57-80; Aland, 4-5)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
