In conversation with the scriptures: Luke’s Jesus – a great storyteller

Rachel Mann explores Luke’s Gospel, in conversation with Ann Conway-Jones.

When reading Luke’s Gospel, it is worth remembering how carefully ordered and arranged it is. Luke makes decisions about how the Gospel material is arranged, how it is to be received, and brings in his own material from a unique source. Our readings come from deep into Jesus’ ministry where it is becoming clearer who is following Jesus and who is less convinced by his ministry. We see how Jesus – as a great storyteller – uses parables to invite his audience into deeper reflection on the nature of God’s community and our place in it.

Rachel Mann is an Anglican priest in the Manchester diocese, a writer and poet.
Dr Ann Conway-Jones is an honorary research fellow at The Queen’s Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education, Birmingham.
