The Gospel of Luke

from The Bible Project

NOTE: This study requires the group to read the first nine chapters of Luke the week prior. This study is not intended to be started without that first week of reading beforehand.


In the Old Testament, God promised to use the nation of Israel to one day produce a king who would help restore a right relationship between God and people. Early in the book of Luke, the writer begins to make the case that Jesus is the king they have been hoping for over the centuries.


In the second half of Luke, Jesus emphasizes that he is redefining what it means to be a ruler. While many hoped that Jesus would establish a kingdom through force, Jesus tried to communicate that he would be ushering in God’s Kingdom through serving. 


THIS DISCUSSION is a Two-Week Curriculum for Groups.

These video-based Bible studies are designed to get groups discussing the Bible. These discussions should lead to better understanding of who God is, inspire us to dig into the Bible for ourselves, and help us to make applications in our everyday lives.

Provide every group member with a link to this page at least a week before beginning the study. Everyone will need to read Luke 1–9 before your first session.
