The Gospel of Luke, the longest book in the New Testament, is actually a letter. Although addressed to "the most excellent Theophilus", possibly a nobleman at the time that Luke was writing, this is a book for everyone.

The Gospel of Luke is full of stories of ordinary people who met an extraordinary Jesus and had their lives changed. It tells tales of people healed in mind, body and soul, of people finding peace and rest where there was none and of people released from the bonds that held them.

The book of Luke is a biography, carefully researched and presented to show us the character and purpose of a SOTER, which translates into English as healer and/or saviour. In Greek, there is only one word for the two english words save and heal, SOZO, and as he unpacks Jesus' life and minishtry, Luke makes the case that Jesus is both our healer and our saviour.

Over the spring period and up to the summer holidays, we will be looking at how this SOTER brought both healing and salvation to people's lives and how Jesus is not just for then but for today. We'll also see how healing and salvation are one and the same and how the words and commands of Jesus are written to build us up as we, in turn, go out into the world to be those very things to all creation.
