|Jesus in Luke|
|What aspects of Jesus does Luke emphasize?|
|Jesus is a teller of parables.|
|See the page of unique material in Luke for a list, but it is in Luke that the great parables are found: the Prodigal Son, the Good Samaritan, the Unjust Judge, etc.|
|Jesus the Zen master|
No commentator on Luke would use this term to describe Jesus in Luke, however there are several pairs of stories that seem to contradict each other, yet that when read more deeply prove helpful at overcoming the limited way we tend to divide up the world.
Do you have to give up all your money to follow Jesus?
Is serving the poor better than a life of contemplation?
Is prayer or action for justice the best choice?
|Jesus at prayer|
| Jesus is seen praying at 3:21, 6:12, 9:18, 9:28,
Additionally parables about prayer include 18:1, 18:10
