Product Details

The Teach the Text Commentary Series gives pastors the best of biblical scholarship and presents the information needed to move seamlessly from the meaning of the text to its effective communication. By providing focused commentary, this volume allows pastors to quickly grasp the most important information. Each unit of the commentary includes the big idea and key themes of the passage and sections dedicated to understanding, teaching, and illustrating the text.

"The Son of Man came to seek and save the lost"—so says Jesus of his mission in Luke 19:10. Luke's Gospel is about this salvation Jesus came to bring. It is salvation story, filled with Jesus's encounters with lost, often marginalized people and the change he brought to their lives. And it is salvation history, as Luke carefully sets his narrative both in the historical context of its day and within the prophetic context of God's larger salvation history. In this commentary, noted scholar R. T. France provides valuable historical, theological, and practical insight for those who wish to faithfully teach and preach the powerful message found in Luke.

About the Author:

R. T. France (PhD, Tyndale Hall) was a New Testament scholar and served as a senior lecturer at London Bible College; principal of Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University; and honorary research fellow at Bangor University. He was the author or editor of many books, including the New Bible Commentary, the commentary on Matthew in the New International Commentary on the New Testament, and the commentary on Mark in the New International Greek Testament Commentary.


The late R. T. France was one of the great British evangelical scholars of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, a great commentator especially of the Gospels. His commentaries on Matthew (TNTC and NICNT) and Mark (NIGTC) are very good, so it is wonderful that even posthumously we have his Luke commentary.
Michael F. Bird, lecturer in theology, Ridley College; Euangelion
France distills his learning in a highly readable, useful volume. France's Luke . . . accomplishes exactly its aim: it instructs, informs, and encourages those who teach to do the same in their own contexts. In a century already filled with oversized and often impenetrable commentaries, this is a humble gift to the church's teachers.
Scott Kohler, pastor, Gentle Shepherd Community Church; No Longer at Ease
France, former principal of Wycliffe Hall, distinguished himself as an expert in the study of both Mark (NIGTC) and Matthew (NICNT). . . . His work on Luke, then, proves itself to be well-informed by a lifetime of study on the Synoptics. . . . France's volume is exemplary.
