Journeying Through Lent With Luke

Throughout Lent we are reading through the Gospel of Luke and putting into practice the things we learned in our recent Shaped by The Word preaching series.

As a church we are reading through the Gospel of Luke over Lent. You can download the reading plan as well as helpful tools for how to read the Bible by clicking the button.

We will post a daily study guide to help you get the most of the passage you’re reading so bookmark this page and join us as we learn to live like Jesus from Luke’s gospel.

As well as this, each day from Monday to Friday at midday we are gathering on Zoom to read the passage together and spend time in prayer & reflection.

DAILY STUDY GUIDE // LUKE’S GOSPEL

Each day we will post a short study guide to help you as you read through Luke’s gospel. The study guide will be available below from just after midnight each day.

3 Apr // Day 40

3 Apr // Day 40

Apr 3 // Day 40
As the two disciples reach Emmaus, they kindly invite Jesus (still a friendly stranger to them!) to stay with them for the night.

2 Apr // Day 39

2 Apr // Day 39

Apr 2 // Day 39
In the stillness of the Sunday morning, as day breaks, so does the extraordinary news! The tomb is empty. Jesus, who they’d seen crucified, dead and buried, was alive! How was this even possible?

1 Apr // Day 38

1 Apr // Day 38

Jesus, along with 2 other criminals, continue their gruelling procession to the Place of the Skull (in Aramaic-Golgotha; in Latin-Calvaria). Scholars suggest it may have been given this name due to it being a popular execution spot, or perhaps a skull-shaped hill.

31 Mar // Day 37

31 Mar // Day 37

As we read yesterday, it is clear that the Jewish leaders wanted Jesus condemned to death for His claims to be the Son of God. However when Jesus is brought before Pilate, the Roman governor, the Jewish authorities change their tactics.

30 Mar // Day 36

30 Mar // Day 36

Peter, we know, has been with Jesus throughout His ministry, and has journeyed to this point with Him. His loyalty carries him along to Caiaphas, the high priest’s house. (see Luke 3v2) He finds courage enough to stay with Jesus and follow from a distance.

29 Mar // Day 35

29 Mar // Day 35

v.24-53: Once again the disciples argue over who is the greatest (see Luke 9:46). Even at this late stage in Jesus’ ministry they have not fully understood the nature of the Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is not like the kingdoms of this world, driven by earthly power (v. 25)

27 Mar // Day 34

27 Mar // Day 34

Plans are set in motion to kill Jesus (v.2). As we have already noted, these events are happening at the same time as the Jewish festival of Passover. This is deeply symbolic.

26 Mar // Day 33

26 Mar // Day 33

Jesus has an interaction with some Sadducees, a Jewish sect whose teaching focussed on the Pentateuch (the first 5 books of the Bible) and did not believe in life after death (a concept more prevalent in the rest of the Old Testament).

25 Mar // Day 32

25 Mar // Day 32

Jesus has an interaction with some Sadducees, a Jewish sect whose teaching focussed on the Pentateuch (the first 5 books of the Bible) and did not believe in life after death (a concept more prevalent in the rest of the Old Testament).

24 Mar // Day 31

24 Mar // Day 31

Bethany and Bethphage were towns to the east of Jerusalem, on the Mount of Olives (a mountain ridge that separated the city from the Kidron Valley). Jerusalem is finally on the horizon.
