This is a great Gospel! In Matthew the King comes to the earth in human form through the Father’s promises through the Jewish nation. Mark’s Gospel explodes for the Roman mind: “don’t tell me about the Jewish story – just tell me what He did!” God’s Servant is sacrificed for the sins of the world – for every nation under heaven. Now Luke helps us understand how Jesus is the Deliverer of the souls of both Jews and all the other nations (Gentiles). To do this the God-Man takes upon Himself the suffering of mankind – and arises victorious in His purpose!
Luke is the only writer of the Bible who was not a Jew. He was a Gentile doctor who was compelled to investigate, interview, and report the “exact truth” about what had happened. Luke later pens the book of Acts with incredible insight – inasmuch as he was a companion of Paul the apostle (sent one).
It is difficult to deny that Jesus the man doesn’t understand what we go through. Check this out:
“In the days of His stay on this earth, He offered up both prayers and requests with loud crying and tears to the One able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverent submission.” – Hebrews 5:7
