Lessons from Luke (ImBible Study)

Posted By vermonthills on Mar 28, 2020 | 0 comments

Reading the Bible through a progressive lens is so much fun!

The 4 layers of our ‘surplus of meaning’ and 3 surprises from the Gospel of Luke.


We ask the text 4 Layers of Questions:

1 What would the original audience have heard?

2 What has the text come to mean in history?

3 What do we do with the text now? (application)

4 What is the most the this text can mean? (future horizon)


Three themes that emerged in Luke:

1 Jesus uses ‘Dog Whistles’

2 the Bible reads differently for those on top or the underside

3 Parables are not allegory
