The Gospel of Luke presents many unique pictures of Jesus. We see him in his Father's house as a child; deliberately associating with the poor and the disreputable; and in communion with the Holy Spirit. We also see the larger picture of Jesus setting out resolutely for Jerusalem in order to fulfill God's plan for the world. With awareness of scholarly discussions and attentiveness to both the text and the reader, Leon Morris places the themes of Luke's Gospel within the context of God's plan for all people.
The late Leon Morris was Principal of Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia. He contributed to the Pillar New Testament Commentary (8 vols.) with his volumes on The Gospel according to Matthew and The Epistle to the Romans.
