Luke 18-24 concludes The MacArthur New Testament Commentary’s look at the longest of the four Gospels. Luke is unique in its historical detail and for how it positions Jesus as the Savior-King not just of the Jews, but of all mankind. Chapters 18-24 follow Jesus as He enters Jerusalem, is tried and crucified, and is resurrected in victory.

A great resource for pastors, teachers, leaders, students, or anyone desiring to dig deeper into Scripture
“The Son of Man has come to seek and save that which was lost.” Those words, spoken by Jesus Himself, summarize both the purpose of His earthly ministry and the theme of Luke’s gospel. In chapters 18–24, Luke traces the next phase of Jesus’ ministry as He enters Jerusalem with fanfare, is tried and crucified by His enemies, and is resurrected in victory. The message of salvation, which permeates this gospel, is as powerful and life-transforming today as it was two millennia ago.
