It includes a small-group experience for 12 small-group sessions, individual study, applicable Scripture, and a group discussion guide written by Dave Morlan, Ph.D and edited by D.A. Carson.Luke brings the gospel of Jesus from the outside in. From start to finish he depicts Jesus as accessible to the unknowns, the outcast, the lost, and the hopeless. Luke shows the stunning embrace of the returned prodigal son and the embittered response of his righteous brother. Luke displays Jesus invitation to Zacchaeus, the hated tax collector eavesdropping on Jesus from the outside and shows the grumbling response of the crowd on the inside: He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner. As Jesus ministry continues, Luke points out that Jesus desire was not just to call sinners but to call sinners to repentance (Luke 5:32). That is, through Him sinners could find reconciliation with God. As a result, this return to God by outsiders causes insiders to re-evaluate the biblical story and examine what the foundation of their relationship with God ought to be.
