Luke | [Dr. Bill Creasy]

Luke

Luke is a Gentile writing for a particular person, another Gentile named Theophilus. In his Gospel, Luke provides a detailed and orderly account of the life and ministry of Jesus. Although Matthew, Mark, and Luke draw from many of the same sources for their material, each Gospel writer adapts his material for his particular audience and purpose. Luke presents his material in a brilliant prose style, as he creates a specific voice for his narrator and specific, identifiable voices for his characters.

Audible Editor Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.

Luke, as Dr. Creasy describes him was a physician, gentile, master rhetorician, and the only gospel writer to give unique voices other than his own and Jesus’ to characters in the story. Comparing it to Huckleberry Finn, Creasy discusses this and other unique stylistic choices as well Luke’s context in history and among within scripture.

    "Excellent Bible Study"

    I also posted this on Amazon.com. This series contains the audio from class lectures by Dr. Bill Creasy.

    Dr. Creasy covers each book verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of corresponding historical events and the geography and their relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study. I find it extremely helpful to study the Bible in context with geography and history.

    As explained in the opening lesson on Genesis, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on. Dr. Creasy does this because 1) if covered in weekly segments, as done in his class, it would be in year 5 before he got to Matthew, and 2) to help show the relationship between Old Testament and New Testament.

    Luke is the Seventh in the Logos Bible Study series, preceded by Numbers and followed by Deuteronomy. Luke has 24 chapters, and the study is comprised of 23 lessons. Total time - 17 hours, 2 minutes.

    Story
    "Dr. Bill hit it out of the park with this one"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Luke to be better than the print version?

    Dr. Bill s an expert the history, the archaeology ,and what it was like to live and different times. There is enough gravitas there for senior Christians and newbies. Hetakes teaching the word of God seriously and approaches it with humor!

    Dr. Bill states what the Lord says,, and then might go off into various interpretations but iin the end he is word-based always word based!

    He makes the Bible fun!

    Dr. Bill has opened up the Bible to me and thousands of others! He is a gem if I did not get to meet him on earth than I will certainly meet him in heaven in which I will give him a big hug!

    That not only goes for Daniel but for other books of the Bible! I originally started listening to his series in preparation of precepts upon precepts studying revelation! and it made it a whole lot easier on me! I am ones and those who actually understands revelation!


    I wish there were more people out there like Dr. Bill and there would be more Christians without a doubt!
