Michael F. Patella, OSB, SSD, is associate professor of New Testament at the School of Theology Seminary and the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota, where he writes the 'Seers' Corner' for 'The Bible Today', published by Liturgical Press.
Luke tells the story of Jesus of Nazareth as a mighty prophet and Savior of the world in fulfillment of Old Testament expectations. Luke also emphasizes Jesus as a person dedicated to prayer. He begins with Jesus' virginal conception and birth, and follows Jesus through his public ministry to his passion, death, resurrection, and ascension into heaven—all under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Luke, along with Matthew and Mark, is one of the synoptic gospels. It is the primary gospel of year 'C' in the Catholic Church's liturgical cycle.
