“The Son of Man came to seek and save the lost”–so says Jesus of his mission in Luke 19:10. Luke’s Gospel is about this salvation Jesus came to bring. It is salvation story, filled with Jesus’s encounters with lost, often marginalized people and the change he brought to their lives. And it is salvation history, as Luke carefully sets his narrative both in the historical context of its day and within the prophetic context of God’s larger salvation history. In this commentary, noted scholar R. T. France provides valuable historical, theological, and practical insight for those who wish to faithfully teach and preach the powerful message found in Luke.
