Dr. Scott Hahn -- (6 Talk Set)
Christian historians of all denominations respect Luke’s gospel as a meticulous historical record. Even many scholarly non-believers have called it “the most beautiful book ever written.” In this edifying Bible study you’ll discover why in Dr. Scott Hahn’s opinion Luke is, incredibly, also the “most Catholic” of the four Gospels!
In six full length talks, you’ll hear Dr. Hahn masterfully demonstrate how the Gospel of Luke speaks powerfully to both the scholarly mind and the human heart with the WHOLE TRUTH of the Catholic faith, discovering a Luke whose personality and special gifts shine through in his writing; a trained physician, offering a medically informed perspective on Jesus’s healings; a skilled historian, careful in his research and precise in his narrative; a star pupil of St. Paul who communicates dramatically, in nine chapters, momentous and significant events the other evangelists include in just one!
St. Luke emerges here as an inspired author who was uniquely gifted to write a Gospel that is both historical and theological. Only Luke gives us the parables of the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal Son and the Rich Man and Lazarus. And only Luke gives us the words of Mary’s prayer in the Magnificat which is our indispensable basis for meditation on all five Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary.
