This study examines how the Gospel of Luke portrays Jesus most clearly as ^saviour. It is in this Gospel that Jesus is found as sensitive and ^compassionate. There is great gentleness, but there is nothing soft or ^easy-going about this Jesus. On the other hand, he does reflect the God ^who is, disconcertingly, the God of sinners. The Lucan Jesus, who truly ^knows the Father, is wholly in the business of lifting the burden of sin - ^not of adding to it.^Luke believes that what Jesus did, said and suffered had and has a ^significance for and bearing on human history. Luke does not seek to ^suppress the tragedy and mystery of the Cross nor undervalue its saving ^role. He does not question the need for the disciple of Jesus to deny ^oneself, to take up the Cross, and follow the Master.^Luke has shown what may be made of Jesus's deeds and words in a time after ^the era of Jesus. For Christians in the 20th century, conscious of a gap ^of two millennia between the first proclamation of the Christian message ^and their striving to assimilate that message, the book argues that Luke's ^preaching of the good news may be more congenial than others.

The Gospel of Luke is the gospel that portrays Jesus most clearly as Savior. It is in this gospel that we find a Jesus of sensitivity and compassion. There is great gentleness, but there is nothing soft or easy-going about this Jesus. On the other hand, he does reflect the God who is the God of Sinners. The Lucan Jesus, who truly knows the Father, is wholly in the business of lifting the burden of sin, not of adding to it.
