Conversations with the Gospel of Luke

Entries of these Conversations are arranged by  chapter and verse.  The newest posts are highlighted blue, with the previous week's additions changed to red highlighting each week.   

I offer these conversations with the hope that the record of my thoughts and prayers will stimulate readers to pursue their own encounters with Luke's Gospel. 

This is not intended to be a scholarly commentary but nevertheless could perhaps be useful to scholars and preachers who are working to engage the text.
