RCS NT 03: Luke

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the " Lord. Reflecting on this verse from the Gospel of Luke (2:11), Martin Luther " declared it to be a summary of the gospel: See here what the gospel is, " namely, a joyful sermon about Christ our Savior. Whoever preaches him rightly
preaches the gospel and pure joy. "
Reformation commentators meditated upon the significance of the good news of
Jesus Christ during a vibrant era in the history of the church that was
characterized by spiritual renewal and reform, doctrinal controversy
(especially over matters such as the presence of Christ in the LordÆs Supper)
and the overriding desire to understand the meaning and implications of
Scripture for Christian belief and practice. While in many ways similar to the
other Synoptic Gospels, the Gospel of Luke also testified to this good news
through unique material, including the announcement of JesusÆ birth to the
shepherds in the fields, the parable of the prodigal son and JesusÆ appearance
to his disciples on the road to Emmaus after his resurrection.
In this volume, Beth Kreitzer skillfully leads readers through the rich
diversity of Reformation commentary on the Gospel of Luke. Readers will be able
to listen to both well-known and lesser-known voices from a variety of
theological traditions, including Lutherans, Reformed, Radicals, Anglicans and
Roman Catholics, many of whose comments appear for the first time in English.
By drawing from an array of Reformation resources - including commentaries,
sermons, treatises and confessions - this volume will equip scholars to
understand better the depth and breadth of Reformation commentary, and it will
provide contemporary preachers with resources from those in the Reformation
church who sought to understand the meaning of this good news of great joy" " (2:10).
