The bull of St Luke

THE GOSPEL OF LUKE

CHAPTER 18: OVERVIEW

Read through chapter 18 and note the various episodes. We have already read 18,1-8 with chapter 17.
What about the end of the chapter if we continue into chapter 19? Where is Jesus from 18,35-19,10?

Look then at the middle of the chapter. How is 18,9 separated from the previous verse?

Compare 18,15 with Mark 10,13 and the sequence 18,15-43 with Mk 10,13-52. Look for a key phrase. What has been left out by Luke?

Look at 18,31-34, noting Mk 10,34. What can we say about the final verse? How has Luke edited 18,35 compared with Mk 10,46?

Go now to my response and our reading plan.

From this, we can read the parable of the Pharisee and tax collector, 18,9-15.
