The Beloved Physician

Why did “Luke” write his Gospel?

And what purpose did he have, in depicting Jesus in the particular ways that he did, throughout this work?

The opening verses offer some clues. This book, that we know as “the Gospel of Luke”, actually describes itself, in these verses, as an “orderly account of the events that have been fulfilled among us”, written to a person named “lover of God” (in Greek, Theophilus). The book was written so that he might “know the certainty concerning the things about which you have been instructed”.

Scripture fulfilled in your hearing

Luke 4:16-30

The story which Luke tells, of Jesus returning to his home town and reading from a scroll in the synagogue, is a story which is found also in the gospels according to Matthew and Mark. In all three gospels, Jesus’ return home ends badly; he is rejected by his own people.

Quote for today

...But you know Him, for He lives with you, and will be in you. John14:17

About Our Church

Our faith community began in 1975 as a small ecumenical gathering of people who settled in the new Canberra township of Tuggeranong. We have grown with the Tuggeranong Community, and our parish centre is the hub for our work, as a place of worship, of gathering, fellowship and ministry.

We come together for authentic and Christ-centred worship. While we worship in a variety of styles, we share a common focus on faithfully listening for God’s Word and sharing His kindness and compassion with others. We express our love for God and others through a range of ministries, and connections with our community.
